Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Walker announced Dec. 16 that he won’t run in 2020. Walker, a Baptist minister from Greensboro, was elected in 2014 to fill the seat Rep. Howard Coble, whose 30 years in Congress made him the longest-serving Republican House member in North Carolina history. Walker told The News & Observer he is “moving toward” a U.S. Senate bid in 2022. Here are scenes from his first race in 2014.
