History was made as this is the first time an African American has been elected president for two terms. A $2 billion campaign was also a record breaker as well. President Obama won the key swing states of New Hampshire, Iowa, and right here in Ohio! "Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward." He continued, "in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come."I want to thank every American that participated in this election, whether you voted for the very first time, or waited in line for a very long time--by the way we have to fix that," said the Commander-in-Chief with charm. Congratulations to President Barack Obama!!
