North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory conceded Monday that he lost his re-election bid, delivering a valuable consolation prize for Democrats, who lost both the presidential and U.S. Senate race in the Tarheel state. The race represents the only loss for an incumbent governor this year, and experts attribute the anomaly overwhelmingly to HB2, the bathroom bill. “It was a self-inflicted, fatal wound to his re-election,” said Steven Greene, a political science professor at NC State University.
