Anti-LGBT Gov. Pat McCrory Looks To Be Toast As Roy Cooper's Lead Crosses 10K Threshold
It looks like anti-LGBT North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is going to need to face the reality that his days in the North Carolina state house are coming to an end.
And it couldn't happen to a better guy. You'll recall McCrory championed, signed and defended his state's HB2, an anti-LGBT law which among other things prevents transgender folks from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity.
Thanks to the law, the Tarheels state has lost millions in income as conventions, concerts and other events have cancelled over the discriminatory legislation.
Democratic challenger, state Attorney General Roy Cooper, refused to defend HB2, and currently has a lead of more than 10,000 votes in the race for the governorship.
