Gov. McCrory concedes election in video message

After nearly a month of contesting the results of the Nov. 8 election, Gov. Pat McCrory conceded to Attorney General Roy Cooper in a video message Monday.

The concession begins at about the 38 second mark.

“I personally believe that the majority of our citizens have spoken,” McCrory said in the video. “And we now should do everything we can to support the 75th governor of North Carolina, Roy Cooper.”

“The McCrory administration team will assist in every way to help the new administration make a smooth transition,” McCrory said.

The concession came as Durham County was completing the partial recount ordered last week by the State Board of Elections.
