“Despicable,” “Shameless,” “Not Fit to be Dog Catcher”: Mark Robinson Goes After Bill Graham in Latest NC-GOV Broadside

“He’s not fit to be the governor. He’s not fit to be the mayor. He’s not fit to be the dog catcher. As far as I’m concerned, he ought to be run out of town on the rail out of North Carolina.’”

At a rally in Wilkesboro this week, Lt Gov. Mark Robinson turned up the heat in North Carolina’s nasty GOP primary by tearing into primary opponent Bill Graham, saying, “He’s not fit to be the governor. He’s not fit to be the mayor. He’s not fit to be the dog catcher,” and suggesting that “As far as I’m concerned, [Graham] ought to be run out of town on the rail out of  North Carolina.”

WATCH:

Robinson also attacked Bill Graham for his legal career, saying, “To enrich himself and then turn around and have the nerve to use that money to run for governor is despicable.”

These new attacks come as Graham has been spending heavily on TV ads reminding voters of Robinson’s long and unapologetic record of making antisemitic comments.

“It’s clear that Bill Graham’s ads have touched a nerve with Lt. Governor Mark Robinson, but rather than apologize for his dangerous and antisemitic comments, Robinson is just returning fire in Graham’s direction” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Izzi Levy. “With six weeks to go until primary day, one thing is certain: this race is only going to get uglier as Robinson and Graham ramp up their attacks, reminding voters at every turn that they couldn’t be more wrong for North Carolina.”
