Dana Jennings: Tillis needs to speak

May 17, 2014 

Regarding the May 9 Under the Dome item “ Tillis on minimum wage, sorta”: Thom Tillis’ inability, or refusal, to answer NBC’s Chuck Todd’s question on how he felt about the minimum wage spoke volumes. If Tillis can’t, or won’t, answer a relatively direct and easy question, how can we possibly consider electing him to the Senate?

He’s either for raising the minimum wage or against it. Let’s hear his answer once and for all. Presumably he has an answer. What he clearly lacks is the courage to speak out.
