Mark Robinson

Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina

Mark Robinson

In the primary election in 2019, Mark achieved a strong victory in a crowded field of eight impressive candidates, garnering just over thirty- two percent of the vote, allowing him to avoid a runoff, and send a strong message that North Carolina was ready for a Patriot to lead the state.
Upon his successful general election, Mark Robinson became the first black American to be elected to Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
