Joe Donnelly has officially been named the winner in the Indiana senate race. Losing is the Republican, Richard Mourdock. Although not all the precincts are reporting, 75% are, and Donnelly has come up with 49% of the vote and Mourdock taking in 45%.
Mourdock recently sealed his own coffin when he was asked about his stance on abortion in the case of rape. He said he believed that pregnancies resulting from rape are a blessing from God. This was a very controversial comment that swayed many voters toward the Democrat.
With this loss for Republicans, it has made it nearly impossible to take control of the Senate.
