Just after midnight, the Democratic gubernatorial primary in Indiana is too close to call. In fact, it's tied.
With 88 percent of the vote in, Jill Long Thompson, a state senator and former member of Congress, and architect Jim Schellinger each have 50 percent of the vote.
Many Democratic heavyweights threw their lot in early with Schellinger, more politically active and better connected than your average architect. But Long Thompson has always had superior name recognition. She is one of those candidates who seems to be on some ballot every election, which is why some Democrats were hoping for a fresher face to go up against Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels.
At any rate, they're tied up as of now.
