Tillis Is Too Weak to Deliver Needed Hurricane Relief Aid for North Carolina

Raleigh – Despite dropping his previously held positions and principles on issue after issue to curry favor with President Trump (and fight his expensive GOP primary), Senator Tillis is too weak and ineffective to deliver much-needed hurricane relief to those recovering from Hurricane Dorian. Tillis and Trump played petty politics as Dorian bore down on North Carolina yet now when North Carolinians need their Senator to deliver for them, he failed.

SHOT: Tillis: “I will continue to work with the NC delegation to get the Governor’s Individual Assistance request approved as NC continues to recover.”

CHASER: The Trump administration and FEMA yesterday “rejected a request by Gov. Roy Cooper to provide disaster relief to people whose homes and businesses were damaged by Hurricane Dorian last month.”
