President Barack Obama won re-election Tuesday night, the major television networks projected.
Obama, 51, secured a second term in the White House, after prizing more than the coveted 270 electoral college votes required to win office as a result of victories in the crucial battleground of Ohio, as well as Iowa and Oregon.
Shortly before 1 am ET on Wednesday morning, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney conceded defeat, taking to the stage at his campaign headquarters in Boston.
“I pray the President will be successful in guiding our nation,” the former Massachusetts Gov. said.
Obama scored narrow wins in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, according to network projections.
Many celebrities took to Twitter to celebrate the result.
Katy Perry: “DONE AND DUSTED!!! The people have the power! Proud to stand by you for 4 more years.”
Ian Somerhalder: “I’m so proud of us as a people.Even people in other countries contributed to this event. A global group hug…Wow. Wow. Wow.”
