Just two electoral votes between Bush and Kerry


Just two college votes separated President Bush and Senator John Kerry when the Democrat challenger conceded defeat. Bush went to bed sixteen votes short of the 270 needed to officially call himself the winner, with the outcome resting on results from Ohio.
The delay in declaring the state a win for Bush came about because the Democrats said a large number of ballots remained uncounted and that could clinch the contest for Kerry.

Votes remain too close to call in two other states, Iowa and New Mexico, but neither result will now affect the final outcome – George Bush remains President of the United States.
