Republicans obtained their victories of the midterm election, with Tea Party-backed Rand Paul in Kentucky and former Sen. Dan Coats in Indiana declared winners in their respective Senate races shortly after polls closed.

Paul defeated Kentucky state Attorney General Jack Conway following a bitter contest that probed into Paul’s religion and generated tense debates.

Paul won in spite of Bill Clinton’s  last-minute visit.

In Indiana, Coats defeated Democratic Rep. Brad Ellsworth for the open seat vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh.
