NCDP Statement on Tillis Pretending COVID Never Happened

North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after Senator Thom Tillis tried to paper over the administration’s failed coronavirus response by saying he’s going to win this fall “because people remember how good their lives were back in February.

“This administration has bungled the coronavirus response and Senator Tillis has enabled them every step of the way. Now, Senator Tillis is just trying to wish it away. But the lives of the more than 1,500 people who have died aren’t better than they were back in February. Neither are the lives of the more than 1 million North Carolinians forced on to unemployment because of this administration’s failure to take coronavirus seriously. Senator Tillis is desperate because he’s a weak, self-serving politician, and his shameless belief that we can just wish away coronavirus only serves to reveal that he’s thinking of his own reelection, not North Carolinians’ well-being.”
