Obama Wins Pa. and Reelection
President Obama has won Pennsylvania, as well as the General Election, for 2012.
Obama is projected to win the state with 52 percent of the vote, compared to GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s 46 percent as of late Tuesday night.
“I commend Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for running a hard-fought campaign in Pennsylvania,” said PA GOP Chairman Rob Gleason.
Despite a furious, last-minute charge by the Romney campaign Pennsylvania ended up staying
true blue. The final weeks of the campaign included massive spending by pro-Romney PACs, and visits from both Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan.
Polls also helped fuel the fire for the GOP, as multiple polls showed that Romney had closed the gap to within three points and tightened the race significantly.
As it stands, Obama has dominated Romney in the Electoral College 303-203 late Tuesday night. However, the popular vote remains tight, with an 50 to 49 percent Obama advantage as of 2:00 a.m.
