Mark Walker Joins Trump Campaign After Exiting Congressional Race

Mark Walker has decided to end his bid to return to Congress in order to join former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The one-time representative from North Carolina will take on the role of faith and minority outreach director.

Walker had been competing in a Republican primary runoff for North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District against Addison McDowell. However, he announced that he would not be requesting the runoff election so that he could start his new position with Trump’s 2024 effort.

Mark Walker served three terms in the House of Representatives before leaving in 2021 due to redistricting making his seat more favorable for Democrats. He had mounted unsuccessful bids for Senate and governor since then. His decision not to continue his comeback campaign opens the door for McDowell to succeed retiring Democratic Rep. Kathy Manning.

Trump announced Mark Walker’s new position shortly before the former congressman revealed his own plans. “Mark and I had many Wins together, and we look forward to continuing to build bridges to all Communities in our Great Nation,” the former president said. Walker expressed that he was grateful for the opportunity to work directly with Trump both in the current campaign and potentially again in the White House if Republicans take back control in November.

Mark Walker’s experience in pastoral leadership and work with the conservative Republican Study Committee makes him a strong pick for faith and minority outreach. By clearing the path for McDowell, he also demonstrated his commitment to ensuring Republican control of the North Carolina seat. Walker may have lost some congressional bids, but his new role gives him a prominent place in Trump’s campaign.
