Mark Robinson, the current lieutenant governor of North Carolina, is an unabashed Christian nationalist and virulent anti-LGBTQ bigot who made no secret of his plans to run for governor of the state in 2024.
Despite claiming that he does not want to be governor, Robinson official launched his bid for the office during a rally Saturday in Altamahaw, North Carolina.
Republican insiders are reportedly concerned that Robinson’s radical views and past statements could make him “a liability” should he win the GOP nomination.
And they have good reason to be worried. Robinson describes himself as “more preacher than politician,” and that is no exaggeration, as he has bragged that it is his mission “to literally make war on the devil” and see to it that this nation is “led by the people of God.” For years, Robinson has been working closely with Christian nationalist political operative David Lane to ensure that their Christian nationalist values “reign supreme” throughout North Carolina.
