President George W. Bush declared "broad victory" in the race for re-election on Wednesday, telling his cheering supporters that "America has spoken".

"We've worked hard and gained many new friends, and the result is now clear - a record voter turnout and a broad, nationwide victory," Bush said. "America has spoken, and I'm humbled by the trust and the confidence of my fellow citizens."

George W. Bush became the first US presidential candidate since his father to win with more than 50% of the vote. On Wednesday he won a second mandate as the 44th president of the United States.

Bush praised Senator John Kerry and said the Massachusetts senator and his supporters should be proud of their spirited campaign.

Kerry called Bush at his Oval Office desk about 11:02 a.m. ET to concede victory after declaring defeat in the vote-rich state of Ohio where already counted votes had show "insurmountable advance" for the incumbent president.
