GOP retains control of Indiana statewide offices

Republican Charlie White overcame allegations of voter fraud to become Indiana's next chief election officer, and Republican incumbents held onto their jobs as auditor and treasurer.

White beat Democrat Vop Osili and Libertarian Mike Wherry in the race to replace term-limited Republican Todd Rokita.

Democrats had accused White of voter fraud after he voted in the May primary using his ex-wife's home as his address instead of the condo he bought in February. Officials are investigating. If White is charged and convicted of felony voter fraud, he could be removed from office.

Incumbent GOP treasurer Richard Mourdock beat Democrat Pete Buttigieg. Auditor Tim Berry beat Democrat Sam Locke and Libertarian Eric Knipe.
