Primary/Referendum Pre-Results Thread

Update: CAC, as usual (good man), has an election thread ready to go.

I'm asking him to publish that one and make this thread a "pre" results thread.

Mourdoch's campaign slogan was "It's time," as in "Time to go."

Earlier, Lugar had sought Democratic votes:

So Im appealing to all of the people of Indiana I emphasize all to ask for a Republican ballot today and to vote for me, Lugar added.

Hot Air links a poll showing it 48-38, Mourdoch's favor, when leanders are included (43-35 without leaners).

Chuck Schumer says he's super-exited that a Mourdoch wins open the possibility of a Democratic pickup, which it does, a little, just because guys like Lugar, once they get elected for 36 years straight (yes, 36 straight years) pick up an aura of inevitability about them.

But Mourdoch's not a bad candidate, I don't think.

Meanwhile, two other races of import:

[I]n Wisconsin, Democrats will choose a recall challenger for Scott Walker. Labors candidate is Kathleen Falk but Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is favored; the contest is bitter enough that a post-election party unity rally has been canceled, so sit back and enjoy as Trumka and his pals in Wisconsin fume. The other big contest is the North Carolina vote that would ban gay marriage and civil unions. If the last poll is right, the vote wont be close: Its 55/39 in favor of the ban in a state O won in 2008, which helps explain why hes keeping his head down on this subject this week.

Here's the Indiana Department of Elections for returns, though we might have a call well before a lot of votes are officially tabulated.
