Daniels Takes Long Thompson Out In Landslide

Last updated on Wednesday, November 5, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Well, seems like the poll-workers prayer was answered in this year’s gubernatorial race.

For those of you that don't know the poll-worker's prayer, it's simple enough: "Dear Lord, let it be a landslide."

Shortly after polls closed in Indiana last night, Republican Governor Mitch Daniels was called to win a second term over Democrat Jill Long Thompson and Libertarian Andrew Horning.

Daniels won the gubernatorial race with 57% of the vote compared to Long Thompson's 40%.

Long Thompson's campaign was criticized by political watchers for not landing on a solid, consistent message that resounded with Hoosiers, and, in the end, the polling that showed Daniels ahead by double digits all election long came to reality last night.
