to reiterate my support of Thom Tillis for Senate in 2014. Thom has been
Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives since I have been in the
North Carolina Senate, and his proven conservative leadership gives me
confidence that he will represent our state with smart, business-friendly
honored and proud to co-chair the Farmers for Tillis Coalition. When asked, I
accepted without hesitation because as co-chair of the Senate
Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee, I can attest to Thom's
record as a pro-agriculture representative, helping us pass landmark farming
legislation in 2013. With Thom Tillis as a US Senator, North Carolina is ensured
an agriculture advocate in Washington.
beginning to see the results of Thom Tillis’ conservative leadership as new
information is released about economic improvement in North Carolina. The
unemployment rate in our state has fallen more than 3.5 % in three years and is
now below the national average for the first time since March 2006. Thom Tillis
will take his proven leadership, knowledge and experience to Washington and
help get our national economy working again.
Tillis is asking you to support him because 200,000 individuals now have jobs
since Republicans took control of the legislature—and that number can increase
even more with a Republican majority in the US Senate.
you want a Senator who will support lower taxes, fewer regulations, positive
education reforms and less government spending, then Thom Tillis is the
candidate to vote for in the primary on May 6, 2014.
