Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson speaks at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority conference.

RALEIGH — Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson delivered a keynote address during this past weekend’s Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference in Orlando, Florida. Robinson co-headlined the event with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

A powerful national evangelical organization, the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual conference is geared towards driving grassroots voter turnout ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

“If you’ve not heard me speak, I’m going to irritate the liberals and make the devil angry,” Robinson said to open the speech, receiving loud cheers from the audience.

“America is the shining light of this world. There is no other place on Earth people are dying to get in to,” said Robinson. “The ‘woke’ set was asleep during Bible study, history and economics.”

He told his story of growing up in Greensboro and how his mother’s faith was instrumental in his rise from poverty to the second-highest elected state office in the state.

“Four years from now, all you 49 other states may have governor envy of North Carolina,” state chapter director Jason Williams said of Robinson, teasing a potential run for Robinson in 2024.

Also speaking at the conference were Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, author Dinesh D’Souza, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and TV host Jeanine Pirro.
