NCDP Statement on Senator Tillis’ Vote to Acquit the President

North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after Senator Tillis voted to acquit the President:

“The president abused the power of his office and then relied on subservient senators like Thom Tillis to cover it up. Even before this process began, Tillis made it clear that he had no intention of honoring his oath to ‘do impartial justice’ and pursue the facts in this case. Today’s vote will follow Senator Tillis for the rest of his life, starting with this November when North Carolinians replace him with an independent voice they can finally trust to put our state’s interests before personal political calculations.”
