Indiana is one of the first states to be called for Mitt Romney.

NPR News is projecting Mitt Romney will win Indiana. With 4 percent of precincts reporting, Romney is leading by a 6 to 4 margin.

Indiana voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but was not seen as a battleground state this year. Prior to Election Day pollsters predicted Romney would win the state by a large margin.

Neither candidate campaigned heavily in the state.

Romney came to Indiana twice–once to stump for Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock and another time to speak at the American Legion National Conference in Indianapolis. Obama did not visit the state during the 2012 campaign.
