Indiana Polls To Close Within The Hour
The nation is about half an hour away from the first results of the 2010 Midterm Elections. Polls are set to close in Indiana at 3 p.m. PDT. Republican Dan Coats held an almost 20 point lead over Democratic opponent Brad Ellsworth heading into today and no surprises have been reported.
MSNBC reports that in order for the Republicans to gain control of the Senate they must win 10 states, including Indiana. It will be interesting to see if the early poll closing time in Indiana has any effect on the too close to call Senate races in Nevada and Washington where polls close at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. respectively. It is possible that those two races will determine which party gains control of the Senate.
