Cal Cunningham Campaign Launches “Truth About Tillis,” A New Effort To Hold Tillis Accountable For His Failed Record, Misleading Attacks

New Video Highlights Tillis’ Record Voting To Take Away Pre-Existing Conditions Protections

RALEIGH, NC — With less than three months until Election Day, and with no campaign message in sight for Senator Tillis, the Cal Cunningham campaign is launching “Truth About Tillis,” a new effort to hold Senator Tillis and his campaign accountable for misleading voters  and trying as hard as they can to rewrite Tillis’ record of failure. 

Truth About Tillis will be releasing regular videos and other content checking Tillis and his allies on their misleading statements. To start, watch the “Truth About Tillis” on pre-existing conditions: 

In a recent interview with WLOS, Senator Tillis said that “pre-existing conditions are not a reason for declining health insurance,” but his record shows he’s actually voted to take away protections for those with pre-existing conditions. He’s repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would take away protections for the 1.7 million North Carolinians living with pre-existing conditions, even saying it was “courageous” to take that vote. And while he touts his replacement bill, independent fact checkers and experts have said that it falls short, leaving many protections “on the cutting room floor.” 

“While Thom Tillis attempts to make an election-year costume change, his record caving to corporate special interests and party leadership speaks for itself,” said Kate Frauenfelder, a spokeswoman for the campaign. “In the Senate, he’s repeatedly attacked health care and voted to take away key protections for those living with pre-existing conditions. In November, North Carolina voters will see through his empty promises.”
