As aired at CNN on Wednesday at around 1:00 a.m. ET, Mitt Romney spoke in front of his thousands of supporters in his headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. He conceded to President Obama and thanked his family, wife and children, friends, and volunteers for their support during the entire campaign period.
“I believe in America, I believe in the people of America and I ran for office because I am concerned for America. This is a time of great challenges for America and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.” Mitt Romney said, adding that he already called Obama via phone to congratulate him.
Later, Romney, who was joined on stage by wife Ann Romney and their children, along with his running mate Paul Ryan and his family, spoke for only about 5 minutes. This is despite earlier reports said that he has written a 1,118-word victory speech and is confident that he will win against Obama.
As of this writing, CNN electoral map 2012 shows that President Obama has 303 electoral votes while Romney has only 206. Huffington Post counts it as 303 for Obama and 203 for Romney. Any candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the election. The popular votes are slightly in favor of Mitt Romney.
