Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson fairly sure he’ll run for NC governor in 2024

North Carolina News

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republican North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson says he’s fairly certain he will run for governor in 2024, rather than seek a second term in his current post.

He said in a public conference call posted this week that he was “95% sure” of a gubernatorial run. Robinson was elected lieutenant governor last November in his first bid for political office.

Current Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper can’t seek reelection again due to term limits.

Robinson has faced recent resignation demands after comments he made about sex education in schools that critics say disparaged LGBTQ people.

Robinson said he was talking about reading materials, not people.
