State legislative results have been coming in maddeningly slowly, but I'm told that it looks like the Democrats may hold onto the Indiana House.

Their current majority is just 51-49. With GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels winning, Republicans would pick the speaker in the event of a 50-50 tie.

I just spoke with Ed Feigenbaum of Indiana Legislative Insight, who shared with me the rap from the two parties there.

It looks like Republicans and Democrats have each unseated an incumbent -- Democrats may have beaten two -- and each party has stolen an open seat. Feigenbaum thinks Democrats may unseat another Republican incumbent or two.

"It looks like, as of now, the Democrats will keep control, and it doesn't look like there will be any change at all in the Senate," he said. But he cautioned that "it's very, very preliminary. We're talking 10 or 15 vote (margins) on some of these races."
