Ed Feigenbaum, our man in Indianapolis, offers this update on the Indiana House, which Democrats currently hold by a 51-49 margin:

Things may be tightening up:

HOUSE AND SENATE : We're only watching one Senate races, SD 05, and Sen. Ed Charbonneau (R) leads narrowly in early returns. Here are the House races we're keeping tabs on:

 

  Held By Ds        

 HD 26  Open Seat . . . Ds HOLD

 HD 37  Reske (D) . . . REPUBLICAN LEAD (79 votes, but 12,000 early votes in Madison County, many from this district, yet to be counted)

 HD 45  Tincher (D) . . . Ds are ahead with a few votes outstanding

 HD 63  Open Seat . . . REPUBLICAN PICK-UP

 HD 68  Bischoff (D) . . . Ds are ahead with a few votes outstanding

 HD 72  Cochran (D) . . . REPUBLICAN PICK-UP (114 votes; expect a recount)

 HD 75  Avery (D) . . . Ds HOLD

 

  Held by Rs

 HD 15  Lehe (R) . . . Ds thought they had a shot in rematch, Rs are leading.

 HD 31  Harris (R) . . . Ds had this as a top target and maintain a decent lead in early numbers, but delayed Grant County numbers will be the key.

 HD 33  Davis (R) . . . Rs HOLD

 HD 44  Thomas (R) . . . DEMOCRATIC PICK-UP

 HD 45  Borders (R) . . . Ds put a lot of $$ in here, and in the last week, but Republicans have regained the lead.

 HD 89  Open Seat . . . DEMOCRATIC PICK-UP

 HD 97  Elrod (R) . . . DEMOCRATIC PICK-UP
