News Headlines

After a long battle with U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., President George W. Bush won re-election as president of the United States on Election Day - November 2, 2004. Bush won with about 51% of the vote, to Kerry's 48%. Minnesota was one of a handful of swing states nationwide. After dozens of visits by the top-of-the-ticket candidates and their surrogates, it was Kerry who won Minnesota with 51% of the vote.

The November election capped a year-long sprint that at one point featured about 10 candidates. Kerry won the Democratic nomination for president in July. In winning the nomination, Kerry survived several shake-ups of his campaign after former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean spent most of 2003 as the frontrunner. But the Iowa caucuses, and an ill-timed scream, doomed Dean, and forced out Sen. Richard Gephardt. And Kerry rolled on Super Tuesday. Kerry's coronation at the convention in Boston that set up the November showdown with President. Bush. Republicans held their convention in New York City in late August.
