Cunningham Campaign Statement on Tonight’s Debate Victory

RALEIGH, NC — Tonight, Cunningham for Senate campaign manager Devan Barber released the below statement following Cal’s win in the first North Carolina U.S. Senate debate:

“Tonight, Cal showed North Carolina what real leadership looks like.

“While Cal laid out a clear vision for putting North Carolinians’ interests first in Washington — from fighting for health care to investing in education to working to help our economy recover — Senator Tillis spent the whole debate trying to distract from his record of failing our state and caving to special interests.

“On tonight’s debate stage, we saw the same Thom Tillis we’ve seen for the last six years, ineffective and championing an agenda pushed by the corporate PACs and wealthy insiders funding his campaign that is out of touch with the needs of North Carolinians. The contrast couldn’t be clearer: Cal will be the champion North Carolina deserves while Thom Tillis will cave to his corporate donors every time.”
