CHICAGO (AP) — President Barack Obama has been reelected to another four years in the White House. Obama told supports early this morning that their citizenship doesn't end with their vote and that the "best is yet to come."
Obama also says he wants to meet with Republican rival Mitt Romney to talk about how they can work together. Obama says he's willing to work with leaders of both parties to tackle upcoming challenges.
Republicans have maintained their control in the House and Democrats have strengthened their hold on the Senate.
That means President Barack Obama will face the same divided Congress in 2013 that has blocked his efforts from enacting major legislation.
House Speaker John Boehner says by keeping the GOP in control of the House, voters have made it clear there's no mandate for raising taxes.
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney made sharply different bets about who would vote this year.
It turned out that Americans who cast ballots looked collectively much more like what Obama had envisioned — a diverse tapestry that reflected a changing America — than the whiter, older electorate that Romney had banked on.
Younger voters and minorities voted at levels not far off from the historic coalition Obama assembled in 2008. Republicans who banked on a more monolithic voting body sending them to the White House were caught off-guard.
The outcome revealed a stark problem for Republicans: If they don't broaden their tent, they won't move forward.
And it foreshadowed changes over the next generation that could put long-held Republican states onto the political battleground maps of the future.
