After following through rigorous sessions of campaigns and presidential debates, optimistic speeches and skepticism from opponents, President Barack Obama defeated rather politically-stubborn Republican candidate, Governor Mitt Romney as he succeeded in being re-elected for the second term.
Having hit the electoral point at 274 with Romney emerging with 201 points, Obama was declared winner as the whole of America roared in excitement.
Celebrities have since the win, taken to their twitter handles to congratulate the President. Have a look at some of the tweets.

No doubt President Obama is arguably one of the world’s most loved man and he understands the power it (love) holds. With love, you can climb the highest mountains – including the ones on the way to the White house. His loving wife Michelle Obama hasn’t been any less supportive. Obama tweeted this photo today.
Watch the win
