    The hearing was possibly one of Republican Gov. Pat McCrory's last hopes to catch up to Democrat Roy Cooper in the governor's race.

    MORE from @NCSBE: @DurhamCounty BOE staff says machine recount could take at least one week & cost extra 10s of thousands of $$. @ABC11_WTVD
    4:27 PM - 30 Nov 2016


    As of Wednesday afternoon, Cooper's lead had grown to more than 10,000 votes for the first time, past the threshold for McCrory to ask for a recount.

    "Governor McCrory, it's over. Governor-Elect Roy Cooper's lead is more than 10,000, and it's time to accept the will of the people," North Carolina Democratic Party Chairwoman Patsy Keever said Wednesday. "We congratulate Governor-Elect Cooper again on a hard-fought victory, and we look forward to working with him to build a better North Carolina."

    The board, voting 3-2 along party lines, sided with the appeal of a Republican attorney who wanted the more than 90,000 Durham County votes recounted by hand because of alleged irregularities in the election night count.

    Worth noting, @NCSBE will need ALL counties to certify results before talk of recount. Lenoir & Bladen canvass later this wk. @ABC11_WTVD

    The Durham board unanimously rejected the request of Tom Stark two weeks ago, saying there was no evidence the tallies were wrong.

    READ ALL GOVERNOR'S RACE STORIES HERECooper leads McCrory statewide with 94 of 100 counties having completed their counting. Cooper has declared himself the winner and his campaign says McCrory should concede. McCrory could still seek a statewide recount if he trails Cooper by 10,000 votes or less.

    McCrory told The Associated Press on Wednesday in Greenville that he's in what might be the state's closest gubernatorial election ever. He says he's "going to respect the process and respect the results" and expects others to do the same.
