NEW YORK -

President Barack Obama has been re-elected.

The Democrat held off a challenge from Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Obama thanked his supporters and said he believes the country can come together.

"Despite all that we've been through, despite all of the frustrations of Washington, I've never been more hopeful about our future," the president said.

Romney conceded the race early Wednesday morning, saying "The nation chose another leader and so Ann and I join with you to pray for him and this great nation."
