That's what one can call a poor loser. Instead of conceding gracefully to his Democratic opponent, the Republican governor still feels he won the election despite the 5,000 vote difference in favor of the Democrat. He is merely showing others that he is a whiner and quite pathetic and he should just concede the race and go on with his life at this point. It is great that he was defeated by a Democrat by the way.

Inspired By Donald Trump, Republican Governor Refuses to Concede Defeat

By Adalia Woodbury

"North Carolina is proving to be a lesson in one of the many consequences that come with electing an authoritarian. It’s a lesson in what happens to the smooth transition of power from an authoritarian leader. North Carolina’s Republican Governor, Pat McCrory is refusing to concede to Democratic opponent Roy Cooper. Cooper who defeated McCrory by 5,000 votes. However, McCrory said he will not concede defeat until November 18, the date that counties complete a canvass of their votes."
"McCrory, a staunch Trump ally, described then Republican candidate Trump as a “role model” after video of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women became public. On the subject of conceding defeat, McCrory’s “role model” said he would keep everyone in suspense unless he won. McCrory borrowed from his “role model’s” rule book by dog whistling about voting “irregularities” while also expressing a sudden concern for all votes to be counted."

Well unless Trump does some serious work you guys can expect probably to take back the senate and many governorships in 2018.

That is the usual pattern.

There are a lot of Democrats up for re-election in the senate in 2018 and I don't think nearly the number of Republicans. It would be tough for them to re-take the Senate. Not that republicans aren't totally capable of screwing that pooch in two years.

As a citizen of North Carolina, I can say McCrory was a good Governor he did what the people of this state wanted done.
Flip side as the State Attorney Genral Cooper decided it was better that he did things his way for political reasons and did not defend the citizens of North Carolina and what they wanted. I do hope McCrory fights this all the way.

There can be little doubt that one of the main reasons that Governor McCrory was defeated by the Democrat is that he signed a very discriminatory bill against the LGBT Community. It raised many issues and consequently many big celebrities proposing to go to North Carolina vowed to stay out due to its new discriminatory law. Bunches of major businesses that would have brought millions of dollars to North Carolina also said they would not be going there anymore to build their businesses due to the new law. So, North Carolina paid the price and lost MILLIONS OF DOLLARS for enacting a prejudiced, discriminatory law filled with bigotry against the LGBT community. Thus, the voters of NC kicked McCrory out as their governor and he should rightfully Stay Out!

TAKE ACTION! Tell Governor McCrory and lawmakers to end legal discrimination in NC and repeal HB2 | NC Justice Center

"Governor McCrory recently signed House Bill 2, legislation passed by the General Assembly that returns North Carolina to an era where businesses can discriminate against customers and employers can discriminate against workers."
"HB2 permits public and private discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Specifically, the bill would:

"Ban local governments from prohibiting businesses from engaging in any type of discrimination. The draft would effectively overturn Charlotte’s new ordinance, permit private businesses to discriminate against gays, lesbians, and transgendered residents, and prevent local communities from regulating other types of discrimination by private businesses."
