McCrory visits Trump Tower

Trump holds "thank you tour" in North Carolina

NEW YORK (WBTV) - North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory arrived to meet with president-elect Donald Trump Wednesday, just days after conceding the gubernatorial election.

McCrory arrived at Trump Tower in New York shortly after 10 a.m.

The Associate Press reported Tuesday that the pair was slated to meet.The timing comes as Trump is working to fill positions in his upcoming administration.

Monday morning, McCrory released a video conceding the election to Democratic challenger Roy Cooper. The two were in a close battle for governor in a heated race.

The results have been in limbo after dozens of protests were filed in counties across the state and official county canvasses being held.

At the time of his concession Monday, four weeks after the election, McCrory was trailing to Cooper by more than 10,200 votes. This would have been outside of the 10,000 vote cap to request a statewide recount.
