Obama Delivers Victory Speech in Chicago after Decisive Election Win: ‘The Task of Perfecting Our Union Moves Forward’

President Obama Holds Election Night Event In Chicago

President Barack Obama delivered his victory speech to thousands of rowdy supporters shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday morning following his decisive win over Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Greeted by a roaring crowd, Obama said: “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.”

“Tonight 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,” the president added.

Obama expressed his gratitude for all voters, saying regardless of who they voted for they made their voices heard. The president rolled to a second term over Romney, winning more than 300 electoral votes.

Obama says he wants to meet with Republican rival Mitt Romney to discuss how they can work together. He says they may have “battled fiercely, but it’s only because we love this country deeply.”
