Regarding the April 23 news article “ Brannon targets Tillis in first GOP Senate debate”: House Speaker Thom Tillis’ espousal of “bipartisan cooperation” struck me as rather amusing. Is that what he thinks he has been doing in Raleigh for the past four years?
I haven’t seen much evidence that he or his colleagues in the majority have sought out common ground in the North Carolina General Assembly and see no reason to believe he would do so in Washington if he were elected. I wonder if Tillis really believes he is a centrist and, if so, what does that say about where the Republican Party is right now?
I am all in favor of electing someone to Congress who will collaborate and seek ways to make government leaner and more efficient. I am just not convinced that Thom Tillis is capable of doing so.
