Pat McCrory spent $260,000 to challenge absentee ballots, vote-counting practices and voter eligibility according to the Raleigh News and Observer.
Roy Cooper defeated Republican incumbent Pat McCrory by 10,227 votes out of 4.7 million votes cast.
To fuel his challenge, McCrory spent approximately $64,000 on attorneys fees challenging the results and $46,563 on campaign staff who stayed on into December. 
The News and Observer reports McCrory had help from Senator Richard Burr and Congressman Richard Hudson who contributed $4,000 each to the former governor's legal defense fund.
In total, McCrory raised $15.8 million during 2015 and 2016, while Cooper raised $24.7 million. The paper reports those totals do not include outside spending.
