Til­lis failed NC; this state de­serves bet­ter

In re­sponse to “Til­lis re­verses course, votes to sup­port Trump on emer­gency dec­la­ra­tion” (March 15):

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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.
