Pat McCrory In Battle Of His Life To Remain Governor, Calls For Recount

Embattled North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is in the battle of his life to keep his governorship after the election results showed him less than 10,000 votes behind his Democratic challenger Roy Cooper, according to NBC News. McCrory has drawn a massive amount of national support and criticism this year for declaring that men should stay out of women's restrooms and vice versa, and he's stuck by that despite companies and sporting events pulling their dollars from the state.

Now McCrory is calling for a recount, claiming mass voter fraud and filing 52 protests, according to ABC11.

Republican lawyer Roger Knight explained, "We don't know the result of the [county] canvass. We don't know the result of the provisional ballots, we don't know the final result of the absentee ballots."

A North Carolina conservative organization has also filed a lawsuit.

Civitas President Francis De Luca points out a problem with all of the same-day registrations this Election Day, saying "In 2012 and 2008, literally thousands of voters who registered same-day vote were found not to be verified and were taken off the active voter rolls. But it was too late; their votes have already been counted. So I think that it's better to do the process correctly."

Democrats, on the other hand, have been accusing McCrory of being a sore loser and gumming up what they believe to be Cooper's rightful victory.

But NCGOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse shot back, saying, "Their bloodthirsty partisan political desires have gone too far this time."
