won his re-election after a tough battle Tuesday night, defeating former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 303 to Romney’s 202 electoral votes.

In the wee hours of the morning, Obama spoke to thousands of cheering supporters in his hometown of Chicago. He praised his opponent and spoke of optimism for the next four years.
