Washington, D.C. - On Tuesday, Democrat President Barack H. Obama, 51, was re-elected with 303 Electoral College Votes (ECV) defeating challenger former Republican Governor Mitt Romney, 61, who received 206 ECV ending his political career. The ObamaCare plan is sealed and Americans will embrace its benefits in the future.
Romney failed to attract a majority of the Hispanic and Afro-American vote in the U.S. His anti-immigrant rhetoric only drew minimal Hispanic support and voters.
In Wisconsin, Democrat Tammy Baldwin defeated Republican challenger former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson ending his political career. Baldwin became the first woman and openly lesbian in Wisconsin to be elected to the U.S. Senate.
The Republicans once again took control of the state Senate with 18-15 and continue to maintain control of the Assembly in Wisconsin.
Obama won Wisconsin and Ohio sealing Romney's fate early in the night after the polls closed.
Democrats kept control of the U.S. Senate. The U.S. Senate will be controlled by Democrats with 51, 2 Independent and 44 Republicans. The House continues to be controlled by Republicans by 239 and 196 Democrats.
The Obama and Romney campaigns spent more than 700 million and in Wisconsin, the Baldwin and Thompson campaigns spent more than 65 million.
