NCDP Statement on President Trump Endorsing Spineless Senator Thom Tillis

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party spokesman Robert Howard released the following statement in response to President Trump giving his “Full and Total Endorsement” to Senator Tillis:

“Senator Tillis has spent the past few months spinelessly bending over backwards to appease President Trump at the cost of North Carolina families, caving like a $4 suitcase and putting military spending at bases like Camp Lejeune on the line, skipping an important Veterans Affairs’ hearing to attend a Trump fundraiser, defending a dangerous trade war that is hammering our rural communities, and refusing to stand up to the administration’s attempts to gut our health care. It’s no wonder he’s Trump’s handpicked candidate – he’s abandoned the state he represents for the president he thinks he needs.”
