GOP poised for big night in Ind. House races

— Republican challengers backed by Gov. Mitch Daniels have toppled southern Democratic Reps. Bob Bischoff and Paul Robertson in the fight for control of the Indiana House.

Jud McMillin of Brookville beat Bischoff Tuesday night, and Rhonda Rhoads of Corydon unseated Robertson. Both challengers received financial support from Daniels' Aiming Higher political action committee.

Democrats entered the night with a 52-48 edge in the House, so Republicans needed just three additional seats to win control of the chamber.

If that happens, the GOP will control both chambers of the General Assembly and the governor's office and will hold the upper hand in redrawing the boundaries of congressional and legislative districts and writing a new two-year state budget.
