Fiona Morgan reports from the Democratic party at the Marriott in Raleigh that it has been announced that GOP gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory plans to concede the race to Dem rival Bev Perdue.

According to the State Board of Elections, with 88 of 100 counties reporting, Perdue has 49.7 percent of the vote and McCrory as 47.3 percent. Michael Munger has 2.87 percent.

Already Kay Hagan has unseated Republican incumbent, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole. North Carolina is still too close to call for Obama/ McCain.
