For President and Vice President of the United States, Weston sided with the state of Connecticut and the country in re-electing Barack Obama President.

In his re-election speech, the president looked ahead to the future. “Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come,” he said.
