Mark Robinson, who became famous for an impassioned speech in favor of the Second Amendment in Greensboro, North Carolina, won the Republican party primary in North Carolina’s lieutenant governor’s race on March 3, 2020.
Robinson is seeking higher office for the first time in his career. He shocked the pundits by winning the primary without a runoff. He also spent less than other rival candidates. One challenger was a state senator who dropped half a million dollars into his own campaign effort. Other challengers had statewide platforms or more political experience than Robinson.
Robinson defeated state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson and former Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.
“We’re not pretentious,” Robinson said late Tuesday. “I’m not spreading a political message. I’m spreading a message of strong conservatism.”
Robinson is a black male, who believes there is a false narrative being spread about racism in the Republican Party.
“We’ve allowed other people to dictate the narrative and tell the story,” he stated. “I’ve not seen any racism in the Republican Party the whole time I’ve been in it.”
Robinson caused a stir about two years ago with a speech in front of the Greensboro City Council, which was floating the idea of canceling a gun show in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida massacre.
He vowed to “raise hell just like these loonies from the left do until you listen to the majority of the people in this city.”
“And I am the majority,” he declared, describing himself as a law-abiding gun owner.
Robinson raised about $90,000 for his campaign during the last six months of 2019, according to campaign finance reports.
Candidates like Robinson are needed in the perpetual fight to preserve the right to bear arms.
Gun owners should be rooting for Robinson’s victory in the General Election.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
