“The statewide recount is almost over, and it appears my campaign will come up short on the vote count,” he said. “I want to offer my congratulations to State Auditor Beth Wood and wish her the best on her next term in office. … My entire professional career has been one of public service, and I hope I will have the opportunity to serve the citizens of North Carolina again in some capacity in the future.”

The release also included a statement from NC GOP chairman Robin Hayes, who praised Stuber’s campaign.

“While he came up a hair short, his commitment to honest, open and accountable government ensures him a great future in our state and our party,” Hayes said.
