WASHINGTON – The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) released the following statement after Mark Robinson became the first Black North Carolinian to be elected as the state’s lieutenant governor.
“Republicans have delivered a historic day for North Carolina, electing Mark Robinson as their next lieutenant governor,” said RSLC President Austin Chambers. “In his campaign, he stood up for Constitutional rights, and because of that he has become the voice of the people in North Carolina. We couldn’t be more energized for Lieutenant Governor-elect Mark Robinson; he’s going to make the people of North Carolina proud.”
Mark Robinson was highlighted in the committee’s July “2020 Candidate Spotlight” series. Robinson is a true American patriot who served in the Army Reserves as a medical specialist. Despite a difficult childhood, he and his family were able to overcome adversity and know they could achieve whatever they put their minds to. Mark embodies the American Dream and is a true self-made small business owner. He is focused on fighting for the life of the unborn, ending indoctrination in schools, defending the Second Amendment, improving veteran care, and standing up for our law enforcement.
