President Barack Obama reminded the State of the Union audience that his political campaigning days are over — and just in case Republicans had forgotten, he won both races for president.

Addressing Democratic and Republican lawmakers, Obama pleaded for both parties to put aside partisanship and work together. He told the crowd he has no more campaigns to run, prompting applause and laughter from Republicans.

Obama quipped, "I know because I won both of 'em." That elicited loud applause from Democrats and another round of laughter.
