Mark Robinson holds meet & greet in Asheville

Asheville – Despite rainy, foul weather there was a large attendance to meet the candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Mark Robinson at the Republican Headquarters in Asheville on October 10th. As the large  man strode into the room, a long line of people followed him into the Asheville GOP headquarters.   Once assembled, he started with a joke about wearing a red shirt, and being a black man who is also a Republican. This was followed by an inspiring and stirring talk to the packed crowd with a clear message.  “Americans must continue to live under the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  This election is about America and our freedoms,” he said.  “The left wants to control everything and destroy law enforcement.” “All hands need to be on deck.  Be active, stay connected, and remember to tell others.”  “Crime has gone up 200 or 300%.”  Of course the criminals want to “Defund the Police.”
