Gun owner who went viral wins North Carolina lieutenant governor GOP primary
Robinson gained to the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor on Tuesday in a crowded field. The former factory worker and daycare operator became a national spokesman of gun rights after a viral speech delivered before a North Carolina city council in 2016.

“Robinson of Greensboro got the most votes and exceeded the 30 percent threshold needed to win outright and avoid a runoff,” according to USA Today.

Ya, but the governor is dem and he assumed the post. I think it was one of those situations like how we ended up with a rep lt. And lost a vote because of it.

Ok so it looks like in NC they elect them separately. Looks like the current gop lt is going for governor against the incumbent democrat. Maybe more gop in NC than I thought. Charollet is very blue.
