Thom Tillis is a Hypocrite and North Carolina Can’t Trust a Thing He Says

Watch Thom Tillis in 2016: “Once the political season is underway, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over.”

Moments ago, North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis announced he was siding with Mitch McConnell in trying to ram through a Supreme Court nomination less than 2 months before a Presidential election. This position completely contradicts Tillis’ position in 2016, where he said the American people should be heard before filling a Supreme Court vacancy in a Presidential election year.


“Thom Tillis just surrendered whatever semblance of credibility and self-respect he had left and gave it to Mitch McConnell on a silver platter,” said American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson Zach Hudson. “In 2016 Thom Tillis repeatedly said the American people should be heard before filling a Supreme Court vacancy. Now that his party is in control of the White House, Thom Tillis is hypocritically violating the same standard he set on Supreme Court vacancies 4 years ago. Thom Tillis will say and do anything to salvage his sinking ship of a political career and North Carolina voters can’t trust a single thing he says.”
