This was by far the most expensive election in U.S. history. Neither President Obama nor GOP challenger Mitt Romney accepted public financing, leaving them free to raise massive amounts of money, and after the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, super PAC and 501(c)(4) “dark money” groups poured hundreds of millions into the election. And for all that cash, Obama was re-elected, Republicans kept control of the House, and Democrats retained the Senate.
Before heading back to the White House on Wednesday, President Obama made a stop at campaign headquarters in Chicago to address his campaign staff after Tuesday night’s big victory.
The president gave an emotional thanks to the staff, tearing up as he expressed his gratitude for their support and dedication to the reelection effort.
“I’m really proud of all of you,” Obama said. “What you guys accomplished will go on in the annals of history.”

Rep. Joe Walsh is the latest Republican using baseless facts to argue that there should be restrictions on a women’s right to have an abortion, even if the pregnancy has put her life in danger.
During a debate against Tammy Duckwork, a Democrat and wounded veteran, for a congressional seat in Illinois that took place on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” Thursday night, Walsh declared that women should not be permitted to have an abortion when the “life of the mother” is at risk, because modern day science can prevent her from dying. “Life of a woman is not an exception,” declared the Tea Party supporter.
Duckworth also pointed out that the conservative candidate is cosponsoring legislation that would redefine rape as “forcible rape” and prohibit federal funding for abortions, except in instances of “an act of forcible rape or, if a minor, an act of incest.”
After the debate, Walsh reiterated his stance against abortion when a mother’s life is at risk in a press conference:
“There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology health of the mother has become a tool for abortions for anytime under any reason,” said the pro-life candidate.
