RALEIGH, NC — Today, Senator Thom Tillis’ campaign unveiled their latest attempt to salvage a failing campaign and distract from Tillis’ record of failing North Carolinians with a false ad that attempts to confuse and mislead voters by irresponsibly presenting itself as a news story that includes a number of false claims already debunked by the media.
The attack ad comes as Tillis is under pressure this week for his failed record of voting against the health care interests of North Carolinians and supporting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act in full, including pre-existing condition protections.
“Senator Tillis is so desperate to distract from his failure to pass COVID-19 relief and his efforts to strip North Carolinians of their health care coverage in the middle of a pandemic that he’s resorted to making false claims about Cal and trying to pass them off as a local news package,” said Rachel Petri, communications director for Cal Cunningham. “Senator Tillis is a dishonest, craven politician whose only record is selling out North Carolinians to the highest bidder. It’s clear he can’t stand the fact that he’s behind in the polls, which is why he’ll do and say anything to mislead voters.”
