Mark Robinson Will Be North Carolina’s Next Lieutenant Governor

You may not remember Mark Robinson’s name, but you should remember the epic “I am the majority” rant he delivered to the Greensboro, North Carolina city council as they were considering a gun show ban following the Parkland shooting.

The incredibly positive response Robinson received with video of his remarks went viral convinced him to run for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor. On Tuesday, he defeated 25-year government veteran Yvonne Holley to win the seat.

From myfox8.com:

“To come from a poverty-stricken background with all the strikes against me and succeed at this level I think should give every American, no matter what the color, no matter what the gender, hope that they too can succeed in this great place,” Robinson said.

Robinson’s campaign focused on championing the pro-life movement, fighting for workers and job security, defending school choice and protecting the Second Amendment.

    Good for the good people.of NC. We need more citizens and fewer professional politicians in charge.

    1. avatar gus says:

      I think someone with good intentions and common sense who doesn’t know anything about politics or how to run a government, is still better than your average politician.

    So now we have a MAN bragging about beating a Black Woman out of a JOB??? The shame……..

      Tommy Sotomayor, Kevin Samuels, O’Shay Duke Jackson, Jaye De Black, and Kid Organic.
      These men have been making black women mad for a very long time now on you tube. And their channels are only getting bigger and bigger.

        At first glance, I thought she was one of those “whites Hispanics”

        1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

          It’s called “being able to pass”, in the black community. It applies to some of my relatives.

    2. avatar TechGuy says:

      Wait a minute…he IS a black man! He beat a black woman for the job? So what?
      He’s a conservative. I don’t care what color he is. He’s one of us!

      1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

        You need to FINE TUNE your SARCASM radar… It was a FUCKING JOKE for all those who did NOT get it……

    The citizens of N.C.picked a good man. I wish him and his constituents much success.

  4. avatar Mikey says:

    I live in NC. If only the citizens of NC had been as vigilant in the Governor’s race….
    I’ll take the win, and looking forward to a recount for the top seat.

    1. avatar ChoseDeath says:

      Right there with you Mikey. I can’t believe Cooper won. Do you know ANYONE who likes him or thinks he did well? Because I don’t.

      1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

        A lot of the population clutching their pearls over the new flu voted for him. Forest made a pretty bad play by only running as “not Roy Cooper.” At no point did Forest ever release a platform, on his weekly call with our local radio guy he repeatedly dodged questions emailed in by listeners.

        I held my nose and voted before him because, well… He isn’t Roy Cooper, but I suspect we didn’t all do that.

    2. avatar bryan1980 says:

      If the GOP had run a candidate like Robinson for governor, he probably would have beat Cooper.

  5. avatar Dude says:

    North Carolina’s first Black Lt. Governor is a republican. Somewhere, Chief Censor is very confused.

    1. avatar ChoseDeath says:

      😂😂😂 What a tool he is.

  6. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

    Some rather bright news from the elections good man doing his duty.

  7. avatar Debbie W. says:

    Congratulations to Mark Robinson for standing up and getting the job done.

    TRUMP/PENCE 2020.

  8. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    Wow!!!
    A very big (smile). It’s things like this that tell me this country will be all right.

  9. avatar Matt in Oklahoma says:

    2A win

    1. avatar Hush says:

      Here’s to you Mr. Robinson, Congratulations and good luck.

        “I have one word for you young man: plastics!”

  10. avatar ChoseDeath says:

    At least we got this one right. I STILL can’t believe Roy Cooper got back in. I’ve never even spoken to a Democrat who likes that asshole. But Mark Robinson makes me so happy. And Richard Hudson won in my district.

    1. avatar M1Lou says:

      Ballot printer goes “brrrrrrrrrr”. That’s probably why Cooper won. That and carpet bagging assholes.

  11. avatar former water walker says:

    Good news on a crappy day…

  12. avatar Porridgeweasel says:

    I wish him success. If he’d been running in my state I would have voted for him. I hope he can help NC keep their rights.

  13. avatar Justsomeguy says:

    Oh hell yeah!

  14. avatar ATTAGReader says:

    God Bless Mark Robinson. I voted for him in the primary never expecting him to even win that. Then I voted straight R ticket hoping both he and Forest would win. The results are very strange. Cooper is literally the only Democrat who won. The NC legislature and importantly NC Supreme Court is more Republican. The Court was flipped. Robinson and Tillis win. The Republican Congressmen won except in Greensboro which was gerrymandered to assure a Democrat. I am not a conspiracy theorist but it is difficult to explain. At least with Robinson, the legislature and the court out of Cooper’s hands, he can try executive orders but every last one will be challenged and he will never get a single piece of legislation passed. But I cannot understand how he was legitimately elected when the rest of his ticket lost big time.

    1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

      I voted Straight R for the first time since 04, I admittedly felt a bit dirty and I fed my ballot to the machine.

      Forest losing was a disappointment but didn’t surprise me much. I don’t know a single person who is a fan of Cooper past the fact that he’s a Dem. I also don’t know many people who know much of ANYTHING about Forest other than he was loudly anti-Cooper. He really needed a better ground game and needed to be more open about his platform (or have one at all) in order to sway the voters who will just pull the lever for a D without knowing anything about either major party candidate.

        As a Libertarian you didn’t vote for Jo Jorgensen???

        1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

          Unlike some of you who consider politics a team sport, I’m capable of making my own decisions indepently. I’m not a member of the Libertarian Party. Small “L” for me, thanks.

  15. avatar Anymouse says:

    There must be a misprint. The media constantly tells us that Republicans are racist, white supremacists, and the 2A isn’t for black folk. It’s good to see Lt. Gov. Robinson showing that they are wrong again.

    My companion is making $77 hourly at the PC . He has been laid off from work 5 months prior, yet a month ago he rounded up $10258 by simply telecommuting with program he discovered on the web. This is the thing that he does… Give it a shot yourself…Visit Now… earn75..com

    2 WORDS: FK. YEAH.

  18. avatar Reason says:

    What’s next for him? If he does a good job. Gov. congressman maybe U.S. Senate. Seems like someone I would be glad to vote for.

  19. avatar Montana Actual says:

    Shatters that progressive narrative real quick.

    Too bad they’re just too dumb to acknowledge it.

  20. avatar Randy Jones says:

    I remember this guy being in the news. Good for him and good for those around that area.

  21. avatar N1GHT says:

    Wow this gave me a reason to smile!!

  22. avatar Dan says:

    The office of Lt. Governor is mostly ceremonial. The person that matters is the GOVERNOR. So unless something happens to said governor and Mr. Robinson moves up a slot he’s really not going to have much of a say or effect on anything.

  23. avatar Dan from Detroit says:

    I moved from MI to NC last year, registered to vote, and you can bet he got mine.
