Obama's Re-Election Lead Newspaper Front Pages (PHOTOS)

Newspaper front pages led with President Obama's re-election on Wednesday morning, after the race was called shortly after 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday night.

Front pages across the country used headlines describing Obama's re-election, such as "Encore" or "Four More Years." Images of Obama giving his victory speech in Chicago Tuesday night accompanied headlines. On some front pages, like The New York Times and Washington Post, the publications used photographs of Obama from days past, beneath fairly simple headlines. The Times used the headline "Obama's Night," while the Post ran with "Obama Wins."

Some publications ran with headlines that were quotes from Obama's victory speech. Obama's line, "The best is yet to come" appeared on multiple front pages.

In some states, Obama's re-election shared the front page with a significant senate race (as with Elizabeth Warren's victory in Massachusetts), or a major state ballot. For instance, the Denver Post's front page headline read, "FIRED UP: Obama wins re-election; Colo. passes pot measure." Colorado was one of two states to legalize recreational pot on Tuesday night.

Take a look at the slideshow below to see how newspaper front pages covered Obama's re-election.
