Maine and New Hampshire voters helped President Barack Obama win a second term by defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
“When voters saw President Obama and (New Jersey Gov.) Chris Christie together (after Superstorm Sandy), putting politics aside for the good of the people, it was a symbolic moment that reflected where Americans want their politics to be,” said Jim Demers, co-chairman of the Obama campaign in New Hampshire. “That stood in stark contrast to Mitt Romney's 47 percent comment.”
