Buck Newton concedes to Josh Stein in N.C. Attorney General race

Buck Newton conceded the N.C. Attorney General’s race to Josh Stein Monday.

While it won’t get as much attention as Gov. Pat McCrory finally conceding to his Democratic challenger, Attorney General Roy Cooper, it’s well worth noting for a couple of reasons.

Newton, a Republican state senator who represents Johnson, Nash and Wilson counties, was a champion of HB2. He introduced the legislation in the senate, defended it, even spoke at a rally organized by right wing groups about the need to “keep our state straight.”

So — the state senator who championed HB2 and the Governor who signed and became the face of it are now officially on their way out. This in an election season that was pretty kind to their fellow Republicans – even those running statewide.
