BREAKING: Pat McCrory Finally Concedes NC Governor's Race

Finally McCrory concedes to Roy Cooper.

It's about time:

“Despite continued questions that should be answered regarding the voting process, I personally believe that the majority of our citizens have spoken,” McCrory said. “And we should now do everything we can to support the 75th governor of North Carolina – Roy Cooper.”

He ends his statement with a plea that we pray for Roy Cooper and Donald Trump and their families.

Roy Cooper has vowed to repeal SB-2.

That law limited LGBT rights and directed transgender people to use restrooms in schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificates. It led to companies, sports organizations and entertainers pulling their business from the state, costing hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in spending.
