RALEIGH -- Republican Governor Pat  McCrory joined GOP candidate for auditor Chuck Stuber in officially filing for a statewide recount Tuesday morning. This recount was filed to meet the original date statutorily specified, although the formal recount will not occur until after the county boards of election certify their results. 

"With many outstanding votes yet to be counted for the first time, legal challenges, ballot protests and voter fraud allegations, we must keep open the ability to allow the established recount process to ensure every legal vote is counted properly," said Russell Peck, Pat McCrory's campaign manager.

A spokesman for McCrory’s opponent, Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper was quick to respond to the recount request.

"This is nothing but a last-ditch effort from Governor McCrory to delay and deny the results of this election. Roy Cooper leads by 8,569 votes – a number that is growing daily as counties finalize election results. We are confident that a recount will do nothing to change the fact that Roy Cooper has won this election,” said Cooper campaign manager Trey Nix.
