President Barack Obama stomps challenger Governor Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential election. As of Nov. 6th the electoral college vote stood at 303 to 206. At the start of the election it seemed as though it was going to be a major tug-of-war between the two candidates but President Obama proved to be victorious in the end. He won the following states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Mexico, California, New Hampshire, Washington, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Oregon, Colorado, Hawaii, Washington D.C., Florida, Virginia and Nevada.
After winning the vital state of Ohio, President Obama tweeted, “This happened because of you. Thank you.”
Romney delivered his concession speech in Boston and Obama followed with remarks in Chicago. Obama’s lease on the White House will renew while he serves his second term as the 44th President of the U.S.
