Networks like CNN, NBC and even Fox news are projecting that President Obama has earned enough electoral votes to be elected for a second term as President of the United States.
The news was announced after numbers came in from the swing state of Ohio, saying that the president’s lead was enough at this point to assume that he had won the state and the entire election with 274 votes, to Mitt Romney’s 203. After the news Mitt Romney’s team was still refuting the claim, stating that it’s still too early to tell. At this point, Romney and his camp have not conceded to the president.
Many are doubtful that the numbers will turn in Romney’s favor.
After the announcement was made, Obama, who is in Chicago for the evening, took to Twitter to tweet this message to his followers and supporters:
We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you. -bo
As many of you know, when President Obama’s tweets are signed with “bo” that means he’s written it himself.
We’ll be keeping our eye on the election coverage to update you with final numbers; but if you’re an Obama supporter, we think you’d be safe to celebrate.
