It was indeed a victory for President Obama as he won a second White House term Tuesday night, beating concerns regarding the delicate economic recovery to completely beat nominee Mitt Romney.
In his speech during the victory rally, he pointed out that there are more work to do. His supporters were cheering for him in Chicago early Wednesday morning.
Obama reached out to his supporters at his campaign headquarters right after Romney called the president to concede. Obama on the other hand praised his opponent on a “hard-fought campaign.”
Despite the political battles in modern American history, the president promised to reach out to the other side in a second term on everything from immigration to the deficit. He asked supporters to keep the “hope” and said that while the “passions” and “controversy” won’t wane after Election Day, “progress will come in fits and starts.”
