CHICAGO (AP) - President Barack Obama has been reelected to another four years in the White House. Obama told supports early this morning that their citizenship doesn't end with their vote and that the "best is yet to come."

Obama also says he wants to meet with Republican rival Mitt Romney to talk about how they can work together. Obama says he's willing to work with leaders of both parties to tackle upcoming challenges. 

Republicans have maintained their control in the House and Democrats have strengthened their hold on the Senate.

That means President Obama will face the same divided Congress in 2013 that has blocked his efforts from enacting major legislation.

House Speaker John Boehner says by keeping the GOP in control of the House, voters have made it clear there's no mandate for raising taxes.
