Cal Cunningham Continues Strong Campaign, As Thom Tillis Remains “Quite Unpopular”

New Poll Shows Tillis Approval At Only 22 Percent As Cal Announces Strong Q3 Fundraising, Makes Way Across State Connecting With North Carolinians

RALEIGH, NC — Cal Cunningham is continuing to build a strong campaign, as new polling out today shows Senator Thom Tillis’ approval rating at 22 percent.

The new poll showing that Tillis remains “quite unpopular” follows three recent polls showing Cal beating Tillis, helping move the race further in Cal’s direction.

Tillis’ latest underwater approval rating follows news last week that Cal raised $1 million in the third quarter of the campaign, without taking a single dime of corporate PAC money. WFAE reported that “Cunnigham has raised more money at this point in the race than Tillis has in 2013,” in what is “expected to be one of the nation’s most competitive Senate races.”

This week, Cal visited folks across the state to share his plan for serving North Carolina in the Senate to make progress on everything from addressing the climate crisis and bringing down health care costs, to taking on corruption in Washington.

Here’s a look at Cal’s week on the trail:

Cal spent Saturday morning taking questions from voters in Orange County and joining fellow Democrats at a festival to celebrate North Carolina’s Chinese-American community.

Cal stopped in High Point for a conversation with WGHP’s Bob Buckley about the state of the race and Cal’s plan to fight for North Carolina. 

Cal returned to his home town of Lexington for the annual Shrimperoo with Davidson County Democrats on Monday. 

At Queens University, Cal held a roundtable with young local leaders to talk about issues facing students in North Carolina.

Cal stood with the brothers and sisters of the United Auto Workers on the picket line in Mecklenburg County.

Cal shared his vision for North Carolina’s future with the North Mecklenburg Progressive Democrats Tuesday.

Cal joined the Davidson College Democrats for a roundtable to discuss health care, student debt, and political corruption.
