Four More Years: Barack Obama Re-elected, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Katy Perry Celebrate
Posted by Newson 11/07/2012 at 12:59 AM
Well, it’s all over. Barack Obama has been re-elected President of the United States, after securing 18 electoral votes from the state of Ohio to put him over the magic 270 on Tuesday night. It was fitting that the battleground state proved to be the pathway to victory, as Obama spent time with Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen in Columbus just over 24 hours earlier. Hanging with Hov and The Boss is cool and all, but following the win, the POTUS made sure to promptly give his millions of followers a proper shout-out.
This happened because of you. Thank you.
