Press Release:

"North Carolinians deserve a conservative Senator who is not afraid to stand up to Washington politicians"

    Raleigh, NC - Garland Tucker, a North Carolina businessman, author, and entrepreneur, today formally announced he is running for U.S. Senate against Thom Tillis in an interview on the Sean Hannity radio show.

    Statement by Garland Tucker:

Garland Tucker
    "This campaign will be a debate between Senator Tillis and me about issues and what is best for North Carolinians. The people of this state deserve a conservative who represents their views, not the elites in Washington.

    "They also deserve a Senator who stands with President Trump on issues like immigration, cutting spending, and foreign policy, and is not tied to the entrenched interests who benefit from the status quo.

    "When President Trump proposed to cut foreign aid spending 30%, Senator Tillis said 'no.' I support spending cuts - and I wouldn't have had to think twice about cutting foreign aid.

    "When President Trump made his Emergency Declaration to build the Wall, I agreed. Thom Tillis not only disagreed, he published an op-ed in The Washington Post opposing the President. Then two weeks later, at the last minute, under pressure, Tillis flip-flopped.

    "Senator Tillis also sponsored legislation with liberal Senator Cory Booker to protect the Robert Mueller investigation against President Trump

    "In Washington politicians talk a lot about cutting spending - but then vote to spend more and more. That's the way Washington politics works. But that has to stop. We need some real backbone in the Senate. It's time to drain the swamp."

    Garland Tucker is a respected businessman. He grew up in a small town in eastern North Carolina. A conservative, he believes in less government, less spending, and a secure border. He is not a politician and has never run for office.

    Tucker has published two books, The High Tide of American Conservatism: Davis, Coolidge and the 1924 Election and Conservative Heroes: Fourteen Leaders Who Changed America, from Jefferson to Reagan. He has served on the board of the conservative Civitas Institute, as a Senior Fellow at the conservative John Locke Foundation, and as Trustee of the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation.
