RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The Pat McCrory Committee filed the necessary paperwork Thursday to establish a legal defense fund as the gubernatorial race extends beyond Election Day.
McCrory is locked in a heated race with Attorney General Roy Cooper to be North Carolina’s governor.
McCrory held a small lead until nearly 90,000 ballots in Durham were tallied late Tuesday night.
Cooper now holds a lead of more than 4,000 votes.
“No one knows for sure the outcome of the election, and tens of thousands of ballots remain outstanding and not yet counted,” said Jason Torchinsky, chief legal counsel for the Pat McCrory Committee Legal Defense Fund.
Jason Torchinsky specializes in election law. Jason has represented candidates around the country in prior recount matters.
Individuals and corporations can contribute to the defense fund. There is no limit on the amount individuals can donate but there is a $4,000 cap on donations from corporations and political action committees.
