Robinson defeated Democrat Yvonne Lewis Holley, who also could have made history as North Carolina’s first Black lieutenant governor. Robinson had a lead of more than three percentage points with roughly 75% of ballots counted Wednesday morning, according to the North Carolina State Board of Elections website.

However, Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, will maintain his seat after facing a challenge from North Carolina’s current Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, a Republican. Robinson’s win means that North Carolina’s governor and lieutenant governor will once again represent different parties.

Robinson ran as a political outsider. He attracted viral attention in 2016 when he delivered an impassioned speech to the city council of Greensboro, N.C., about gun rights.

What a fantastic story and win!

Congratulations, Mr. Robinson!
