Tillis failed NC; this state deserves better
In response to “Tillis reverses course, votes to support Trump on emergency declaration” (March 15):
North Carolina and its citizens deserve senators who will stand by their convictions and stand up against a bully president. Thom Tillis has failed that test in spades.
After sounding off in an op-ed piece for the Washington Post, a column that Tillis elected to write, he turns tail and runs when threatened with primary opposition in 2020.
We deserve so much better. The sad reality is this: Tillis can no longer look North Carolinians in the eye and state his principles, whatever they may be. At least not until he fetches orders from the president. A very sad day.
