Cooper Defeats Crumley In AG's Race

Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper will keep his job for another four years.

Cooper secured a third four-year term as North Carolina's No. 1 law enforcer by defeating Republican Bob Crumley on Tuesday night.

The Associated Press called the race for Cooper based on an analysis of voter interviews, conducted for the AP by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International.

The 51-year-old former state legislator from Rocky Mount ran for re-election instead of mounting a bid for governor because he said he had "so many issues to tackle," and focused his campaign largely on his record during the past eight years.

    Cooper is one of the few Dems I voted for but he earned my vote because his performance in this postion has impressed me to no end. His handling of the Duke Lacrosse fiasco was admirable to say the least.
