Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Hoosier voters made their voices heard and Republicans in Allen County are celebrating victories at their post election victory luncheon.

GOP party members certainly have cause for celebration. In Allen County, the Republicans took every seat, including ousting Win Moses, who'd held his position in the Indiana House of Representatives since 1992.

But perhaps the bigger stories in Indiana are how the Hoosier voters made their feelings known, specifically, in the races for U.S. Senate and School Superintendent.

Republican Tony Bennett was unseated for State School Superintendent by Democrat Glenda Ritz.

By a four percent margin, Ritz surged past the incumbent.

And Democrat Joe Donnelly defeated Republican Richard Mourdock to claim Republican Richard Lugar’s U.S. Senate seat.

The victory luncheon was held at the GOP party headquarters in downtown Fort Wayne.
