RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has conceded to Attorney General Roy Cooper in the state's gubernatorial race.

McCrory released a video Monday where he congratulated Roy Cooper in his win.

"I personally believe that the majority of our citizens have spoken," McCrory says in the video. "And we now should do everything we can to support the 75th Governor of North Carolina Roy Cooper."

The race was the closest margin in North Carolina history, with Democrat Cooper leading Republican McCrory by 10,250 votes.

Cooper had declared himself the winner of the race on election night.
