ASHEBORO – Incumbent Congressman Mark Walker (R-6) declared victory in Tuesday’s primary election, defeating challenger Chris Hardin. “Throughout this election, I have talked about trust,” said Walker in a statement Tuesday night. “Building understanding and relationships in our communities is essential to addressing the economic and social problems that impact the 6th District.”Walker will face Democrat Peter Glidewell in November. Baptist pastor, Walker spent the day throughout the district talking to voters as they arrived to cast their ballots. He and several dozen volunteers worked phones as well from his Greensboro campaign office.”Tonight, I am thankful for the trust the people of the North Carolina have shown in me,” said Walker. “I view our success tonight as a testement to the hard work of hundreds of volunteers, confirmation of my conservative record and a charge to continue building bridges between communities within the 6th District.”Walker’s Republican challenger, Chris Hardin a former police officer and Guilford County native, also worked the polls in an effort to get out the vote. Hardin graduated from Gardner-Webb University and focused much of his campaign messaging on protecting Second Amendment rights. He was first elected to Congress in 2014 to fill Howard Coble’s seat after a nine-way Republican primary and heavily contested run-off.
