Lt. Governor Visits LeeBoy

Wayne Howard

One might reasonably call it an early campaign appearance. North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson said last Fall that he will likely be running for Governor in 2024.

Robinson visited LeeBoy, the equipment manufacturer in the industrial park off Finger Mill Road north of Lincolnton Thursday morning (April 5th). His visit to the plant was part of an "I Make America" effort by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers to secure favorable policy for equipment makers like LeeBoy.

While that was the stated purpose of the visit, Robinson's remarks included much more that sounded like political campaigning. He said voter ID is "the crucial issue on the table for our office right now."

Robinson criticized judges who blocked the voter ID law passed by the General Assembly. That voter ID law is still on hold as it is being challenged in the courts.

Robinson is scheduled to join former President Donald Trump, US Senate candidate Ted Budd, and 11th district Congressman Madison Cawthorn at a rally at Selma, southeast of Raleigh in Johnston County, this weekend.

Robinson, who is 53, is the first person of color to serve as North Carolina's Lt. Governor. He said Thursday that the likelihood he'll be running for Governor in 2024 "is now 98%."
