North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after Cal Cunningham’s decisive win in tonight’s North Carolina Senate debate:
“Congratulations to Cal Cunningham on his decisive victory tonight. Senator Tillis showed yet again why North Carolinians simply don’t trust him – he’s bought and paid for by wealthy special interests and caves to his party bosses.
“Senator Tillis has raked in hundreds of thousands from PACs tied to Big Pharma while carrying their water in Washington. When it came time to stand up for our state, he promised to rubber stamp a nominee to our highest court sight unseen even though the future of our health care and protections for people with pre-existing conditions hang in the balance.
“North Carolinians deserve an independent voice who isn’t afraid to stand up to the political corruption we’re seeing in Washington, not a spineless politician who joins it. Once we send Cal to the U.S. Senate, that’s what they’ll get.”
