Barack Obama wins — he’ll serve a second term as president after a hard-fought election.
AP is calling the presidential election for Obama after Romney lost Ohio and several other key states.
The Chicago convention center where Obama supporters have gathered to watch the results is exploding in joy and enthusiasm. Not so the Romney camp in Boston, which has been muted as results increasingly showed the tally of electoral votes rising in Obama’s column.
“This happened because of you. Thank you” he tweeted to supporters” as he secured four more years in the White House.
