Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney picked up his first wins in two safe states on Tuesday while President Barack Obama won Vermont as expected, US television networks reported.

Romney won in Indiana and Kentucky, two states traditionally in the Republican column, and Obama prevailed in left-leaning Vermont, according to projections from US networks as polls closed in six states.
