President Obama will serve a second term. Democrats retain the Senate, Republicans retain the House.
With Florida, Nevada and Colorado still in play, the race has been called. As this and so many other pundits predicted, Ohio would be pivotal. Obama stands at 274 electoral votes, and Romney at 201.
This election night race took 18 minutes longer than in 2008.
Obama just peeled the final vote from the split EV voting state Maine, adding one more to his tally. Nevada and Colorado just broke for Obama too, adding 5 and 9 more respectively.
