A few key things worth knowing about Indiana's election Tuesday:

A GOP night, but not a sweep

Indiana's reputation for splitting tickets was out in full force Tuesday. Republicans claimed top races including president, governor and attorney general, but they lost their bids for U.S. Senate and suffered a stunning defeat in the race for the state's top education official. Democrat Glenda Ritz, an Indianapolis media specialist who lacked funding but had the support of teachers angered by education overhauls pushed by Republican Tony Bennett, unseated the incumbent. But her pledge to roll back many of Bennett's changes could meet with resistance in the GOP-led Legislature.



Third party not a spoiler


Libertarian Andrew Horning won nearly 6 percent of the vote in the U.S. Senate race, but that doesn't mean he spoiled Republican Richard Mourdock's chances of victory. Libertarians typically win about 3 percent of the vote in Indiana. Former "Survivor" contestant Rupert Boneham was even less of a factor in the governor's race, receiving about 4 percent of the vote.



Friendly surroundings


Governor-elect Mike Pence will have a friendly Legislature to work with when he takes office in January. Republicans maintained their majorities in the state House and Senate, setting up a scenario similar to Mitch Daniels' first two years in office. That could help Pence quickly make his mark on the office.



Women scorned


Voters who bought in to Richard Mourdock's arguments that U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar was too old and out of touch in the primary were a target for both Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly in the general election, but in the end, women voters were a big factor in Donnelly's victory. Half of women voters surveyed in exit polls conducted for The Associated Press chose Donnelly, while only about 4 in 10 were for Mourdock. Many said they weren't happy with Mourdock's comment that a pregnancy resulting from rape was "something God intended."
