Republican incumbent Pat McCrory trails Democrat Roy Cooper by more than 6,100 votes in the ongoing race for North Carolina's governor.

In the two weeks since Election Day, McCrory’s campaign has called for all provisional and absentee ballots to be counted, while raising dozens of claims of voter fraud. As more votes have been tabulated, Cooper’s lead has increased.

Jeff Tiberii talks with WUNC Digital Editor Elizabeth Baier about past recounts in Minnesota and Florida, as well as journalism on the web, a 'post-factual' America, and other topics on this episode of the WUNCPolitics podcast.
