It’s time for Pat McCrory to concede. Instead of accepting the fact that voters rejected his bid for re-election, McCrory launched an all-out effort to throw the integrity of the election into question by lodging baseless voter protests in more than half of the state’s 100 counties. Last night, the Republican-controlled State Board of Elections issued an order requiring dismissal of all 52 of those protests. The latest vote tallies show McCrory nearly 10,000 votes behind Roy Cooper.
“Governor-elect Roy Cooper is the clear winner of this race, and it’s far past time for Pat McCrory to stop his desperate attempts to undermine the will of the voters,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “McCrory is nearly 10,000 votes behind, and the Republican controlled State Board of Elections has rejected all of his last-ditch efforts to sabotage the outcome of this election. Enough is enough. Move on, McCrory.”
Time to say goodbye!
