Former Congressman Mark Walker will continue his run for U.S Senate

Former U.S. Representative Mark Walker announced his run for the U.S. Senate.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Former U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) announced he will continue his run for the U.S. Senate.

Walker made the announcement Thursday in front of a crowd of supporters. He unveiled the announcement on a bus. He previously represented the U.S. House from 2015 to 2021. He decided not to run again after his district was redrawn to favor the Democratic candidate.

In December, Walker and his wife Kelly released a video saying he was still debating if he should run for Senate or the House. Walker said he was recently offered the endorsement of former President Trump for a U.S. House seat in central North Carolina.

WFMY News 2's Ben Briscoe previously spoke to Walker about his time in the House and if a run for Senate was still on the table.
