GOP Candidate Mark Robinson Vows To Shake Up North Carolina Government If Elected Governor

Mark Robinson, the Republican lieutenant governor and candidate for governor in North Carolina, isn’t holding back when it comes to his plans for the state if he wins in November.

Speaking at the North Carolina Republican Party Convention in Greensboro this weekend, Robinson laid out his vision for “bringing change” to the Tar Heel State’s government.

Robinson took aim at school officials failing their students and their parents “who think they know more than you, know your children better than you, who believe it’s okay to feed your children a steady diet of communism and pornography.”

He also expressed his belief that North Carolina’s economy is on the brink of an explosion and that it’s time to “direct that explosion in the right way.”

The race for governor between Robinson and Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein is expected to be a tight one as they vie to replace term-limited Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC). Democrats are pulling out all the stops to flip the state blue and secure a win for President Joe Biden in the presidential election.

Former President Donald Trump who has endorsed Robinson, even going so far as to call him “Martin Luther King on steroids” in March, was a topic of discussion at the convention.

Robinson defended Trump against what he perceives as a media more interested in the former president’s legal woes than the “failures of the Democratic Party.”

Trump’s family members also made appearances at the convention, with his son Eric Trump and daughter-in-law Lara Trump, co-chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, delivering speeches celebrating the changes within the Republican Party.
