Both of North Carolina’s U.S. senators, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, are holding a telephone town hall Tuesday afternoon to answer questions from constituents.
“We’ll have a conversation with North Carolinians about important issues facing our state and country,” Tillis posted on Facebook.
The invitation says the 5:30 p.m. start time could be delayed depending on the Senate’s schedule Tuesday. Anyone who wants to participate should go online to a link that will become active when the event begins.
The senators’ staff will select the questions that Tillis and Burr will answer. Both Republicans have faced criticism this year for not holding town hall events where they take questions and comments in person, but they’ve argued that the telephone town hall events can reach more people.
