Raleigh’s CBS affiliate reports:
North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has conceded to Attorney General Roy Cooper in the state’s gubernatorial race. McCrory released a video Monday where he congratulated Roy Cooper in his win. “I personally believe that the majority of our citizens have spoken,” McCrory says in the video. “And we now should do everything we can to support the 75th Governor of North Carolina Roy Cooper.” The race was the closest margin in North Carolina history, with Democrat Cooper leading Republican McCrory by 10,250 votes.
As you all know EX-Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed the hateful law HB2 into effect last March that, among other things would allow discrimination including service and public accommodations against LGBT people and would ban any city in the state of North Carolina the ability to provide LGBT discrimination protections. (It wasn’t all about bathrooms.)
Expect one of Governor-Elect Roy Copper’s first moves in office to repeal the law.
