An emotional President Barack Obama ended his final campaign in Iowa, the place that launched his first White House bid.

Obama ended his tour in Des Moines with a speech that harkened back to his 2008 campaign. “I’ve come back to Iowa one more time to ask for your vote. I came back to ask you to help us finish what we’ve started, because this is where our movement for change began,” he told a crowd of some 20,000 people.

Obama’s voice broke and he wiped away tears from his eyes as he reflected on those who had helped his campaign.

No matter who clinches the election, Obama is set to rake in millions. By delivering highly sought after speeches, writing best-selling books and landing lucrative corporate directorships, former presidents rake in millions.
