UPDATED: Pat McCrory won the governor's race and now he's headed to Vegas to party.
Well, not entirely. The governor-elect is traveling to Sin City on Tuesday for the Republican Governors Association annual conference, which runs Wednesday through Friday, a spokesman said.
McCrory is sure to be celebrated as the only Republican to flip a governor's mansion from blue to red. But the conference is ostensibly agenda-focused with policy and political meetings intended to orient new governors like McCrory and hone the larger GOP message. Republicans now hold 30 state governorships -- the most since 2000.
