At a Tuesday morning press conference, NC GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse told the media that the Governor’s race can be resolved within a few days, if a recount of Durham County is approved.
If the recount of Durham doesn’t happen, Woodhouse said they’ll continue pushing for a statewide recount.
“We have an opportunity to bring the 2016 election to a close within the next few days,” Woodhouse said. “Durham County is going to recount its votes, or the entire state will if that is an option.”
The State Board of Elections will meet Wednesday to review a request for a recount of early votes in Durham County.
As of Tuesday afternoon, McCrory still trails Roy Cooper by more than 9,000 votes statewide. McCrory is entitled to a recount under state law should the margin stay within 10,000 votes.
