Mark Walker Tops GOP Straw Poll for 2022 Senate Race

While U.S. Representative Ted Budd received an endorsement from former President Donald Trump Saturday at the state’s GOP Convention, former U.S Representative Mark Walker appeared to be the most popular senate candidate at the weekend event. The results of a U.S. Senate Straw Poll, taken at the GOP convention, showed Walker as the favorite candidate to take over the seat soon to be vacated by retiring Senator Richard Burr. Walker received 44 percent of the straw poll votes, compared to 29.4 percent for Budd, and 17.5 percent for former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory.
