United States Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has admitted defeat in the U.S elections.
‘I have called Obama to congratulate him upon his victory…I wish them well, his supporters, family and our country… we can t risk political bickering,” Romney said.
Romney who says he had written a 1,118 word victory speech has been defeated by incumbent President Barack Obama in the race for the White House.
“I believe in America, I believe in the people of America and I ran for office because I am concerned for America,” Romney said.
“This is a time of great challenges for America and I pray that the President is successful in guiding our nation. I wish all of them well, particularly the president, the first lady and their daughters,” he said.
Romney explained, “I ran for office because I’m concerned for America,” and added, “Like so many of you, Paul and I have left everything on the field. We have given our all to this campaign.”
Romney delivered his speech to waiting supporters in Boston Wednesday morning.
