INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana voters' independent streak was on display Tuesday as the conservative state chose Republicans Mitt Romney for president and Mike Pence to replace popular GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels, but rejected a tea party-backed Senate candidate and ousted the state's top education official.

Romney returned Indiana to the Republican column in the presidential race after President Barack Obama's surprise 2008 victory, while moderate Democrat Joe Donnelly was elected to the Senate after beating Republican Richard Mourdock, whose candidacy stumbled on a series of missteps following his primary upset of longtime U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar.

Donnelly's win dealt a blow to the tea party, which had hoped to snag one of its biggest campaign prizes with a Mourdock victory. Nonetheless, the stage is set for a conservative Statehouse that could continue the policies started under Daniels.

In another Democratic upset, Glenda Ritz beat Republican state school Superintendent Tony Bennett, whom teachers had opposed because of sweeping changes he has pushed in the state's schools.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller won re-election as the state government's top lawyer.

The Republican defeated Democratic nominee Kay Fleming to win a second four-year term.

In the Republican primary in May, Mourdock knocked off Lugar, a six-term senator, but he couldn't translate that win into a general election victory, especially after his comments during an Oct. 23 debate that a pregnancy resulting from rape is "something God intended."

Donnelly, a three-term Democratic congressman from northern Indiana, drew support from Lugar backers and Mourdock opponents. With most precincts reporting, Donnelly collected 50 percent of the vote to Mourdock's 44 percent.

Romney's win in Indiana was founded on support from whites, conservatives, voters older than 40 and people with family incomes of at least $50,000. Obama, who in 2008 gave Democrats their first Indiana presidential ticket victory since 1964, lost ground with younger people and those with incomes of more than $100,000.

Republicans picked up one seat in the state's congressional delegation, with former state Rep. Jackie Walorski's victory over Brendan Mullen in the 2nd District. All of the state's congressional incumbents won re-election, and Republicans Susan Brooks and Luke Messer picked up seats in the 5th and 6th Districts.
