Conservative Mike Pence has won the governor’s office in Indiana, despite a stumble by Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.

With 87 percent of precincts in, the former congressman had 50 percent of the vote compared to 46 percent for Democrat John R. Gregg.

Pence will replace term-limited GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Pence is former chairman of the House Republican Conference and also former leader of the conservative Republican Study Committee. He’s also a member of the Tea Party Caucus.

Republicans also picked up a governor’s seat in North Carolina, with the victory of former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory.

McCrory becomes the state’s first GOP governor in 20 years.
