Tillis accuses Harris of 'going negative' and Harris fires back

House Speaker Thom Tillis recently sent a personal email to rival Mark Harris accusing him of "going negative" in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Harris, a Baptist minister, responded quite publicly. Harris sent his reply to Tillis, and later included it in an email to his supporters Wednesday evening. In the message, Harris rejected Tillis' assertion, saying that "discussing the facts of one's record is not 'going negative.' "
