North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson will keynote the Reagan Republican Rally on Thursday, June 24, at the Tar Heel Variety Theater on Carrow Road in Chocowinity. This annual fundraiser is sponsored by the Beaufort County Republican Party.
Mark Robinson became a household name in 2018 when he delivered an incredibly strong address to the Greensboro City Council defending the 2nd Amendment. This speech went viral and to- date has been viewed over 200 million times online.
Following this speech, Robinson began traveling to spread a message of common-sense conservatism: Protecting the life of the unborn, defending the 2nd Amendment, giving back parents control over their children's education, standing up for law enforcement, addressing veteran's care, and enacting election reform. It was from this platform that in July of 2019, he launched his historic campaign for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
In the primary election, Robinson 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. Upon his successful general election, Mark Robinson became the first black American to be elected to Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
The evening program will also include patriotic music by Dana Lewis of Chocowinity.
This year, a silent auction is part of the event. A variety of items ranging from a handmade quilted wall hanging and baked goods to artwork and wind chimes will be on auction. Don't forget your checkbooks!
Why host a fundraiser now? The county party uses funds to support Republican candidates and keep Republicans informed about legislation, events, and issues. After each election a new cycle begins with precinct meetings, a county convention, and election of officers. Since a new cycle began in March, new funds are needed to keep Republicans elected in Beaufort County.
The Reagan Republican Rally will begin at 6:00 p.m. with registration, meet and greet, and a Silent Auction. The program and meal will begin at 7:00 p.m. Individual tickets are $50 and sponsorships range from $250 to $500.
