Election 2016 Updates

December 08, 2016

NC Gov. Pat McCrory conceded the election to Democrat Roy Cooper on Monday after a recount he requested in Durham County was showing no change in the election results.  Acknowledging that it was a divisive election, Gov.-elect Cooper said, “I know still that there is more that unites us than divides us.”  Cooper will face a Republican super majority in both chambers of the state legislature.

The results of Maine’s Question 2, a tax on income above $200,000 to fund education initiatives, will also stand.  Opponents withdrew their request for a recount of election results, which showed approval of the measure by a less than 1 percent margin. Revenue from the surtax will be used to fund public education.
