Mitt Romney has won Indiana's presidential election as voters returned to their red-state ways just four years after Barack Obama gave Democrats their first Indiana White House nod in four decades.

Romney's victory Tuesday capped a presidential race in which Indiana was largely ignored in favor of swing states.

Obama made nearly 50 trips to Indiana in 2008, many during his primary fight against Hillary Rodham Clinton. But he hadn't visited Indiana in more than a year, and Romney visited the state only twice, both times in the Evansville area.

Republicans have made steady gains in state and federal elections in the past four years, and Romney was supported by Indiana's GOP establishment, including Gov. Mitch Daniels.
