Whitsett, NC - Senatorial candidate from North Carolina comes out swinging with a no-holds-barred speech. First up was a quip on no-show Pat McCrory. Did the dog eat his homework? A couple of paragraphs from Mark's website: After sixteen years of serving as a pastor, Mark Walker followed a new calling and launched an improbable campaign for Congress. With no political pedigree or capital, he built a grassroots campaign that centered on a simple idea: PEOPLE OVER POLITICS. Like many voters, Walker had grown frustrated with Washington’s failed promises and their business as usual approach. By God’s grace, Walker was successful. Throughout a primary, a run-off and general election in 2014, Walker was tested, attacked and outspent; however, he refused to engage in mudslinging politics and chose to lead a positive campaign, focusing on hope, opportunity and solutions.
