On the final day, both President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney have commended each other for a campaign well run.
Romney offered some rare words of praise for his opponent today, during a stop at a campaign office in Green Tree, Pennsylvania.
“”This president has run a really a strong campaign. I believe he’s a good man,” Romney said. “But it’s time for a new direction.”
Obama, during a visit to one of his campaign offices in Chicago today to greet volunteers, said he knows Romney’s volunteers are as enthusiastic, and added: “I want to congratulate Governor Romney and his team for a hard fought race as well.”
