William M. Welch and Gary Strauss, USA TODAYShare

President Obama is heading back to the White House after a hard fought race. Winning Ohio sent him over the top.

2:24AM EST November 7. 2012 – President Obama won re-election to the White House Tuesday, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the nation’s costliest, and perhaps most bitterly contested campaign — one that ultimately came down to winning a handful of key battleground states.

Obama and Romney were in a virtual tie in most polls in the closing days of the election, with several swing states up for grabs. But Obama won virtually every critical battleground state, including Ohio, which pushed him over a majority of electoral votes and prompting widespread celebration among supporters of the president.
