President Barack Obama won re-election on Tuesday, defeating Republican Nominee Gov. Mitt Romney after a long and grueling presidential race. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) joins CNN this morning to discuss the president’s victory and to argue that now that “the election is over, it’s time for governing” not politics.
“It’s time for people to get serious about getting things done, putting Americans back to work,” Nutter says, adding that higher education and encouraging businesses to invest are also important. “Let’s put the politics aside – the point scoring politics – and let’s deal with real people, real personalities, real leadership and commitment to making things happen on behalf of the American public.”
