The first results from the election are in: John McCain is the winner in Kentucky, while Barack Obama has captured Vermont. Obama and McCain split the first two states in which the outcome is known -- McCain taking the eight electoral votes at stake in Kentucky, while Obama gets Vermont's three electoral votes.

Democrats, meanwhile, have taken one Senate seat away from the Republicans, with Mark Warner defeating Jim Gilmore in Virginia to capture the seat that was held by the retiring Republican John Warner. In South Carolina, meanwhile, Republican Lindsey Graham -- a leading McCain ally and adviser -- was re-elected to his Senate seat.

In Indiana, Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels has been re-elected.
