Uggh! Traitor Thom TIllis says he is running again in 2026 for Senate | Eastern North Carolina Now

Despite feelers on running for governor in 2024 and speculation he would cash out for a cushy lobbyist job in 2026, liberal Republican US Senator Thom Tillis says he is running again for US Senate in 2026.  This in spite of the NC Republican Party convention last month voting by a 3 to 1 margin to censure Tillis for his liberal votes as a senator, and a majority of the NCGOP's county organizations doing likewise.

Tillis did not even bother to make the announcement here in North Carolina.  He did it through his consultant, Paul Shumaker, in a podcast run by the mother of all special interest groups, the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC.  He wants the special interests to know he is running again, but not so much the people of North Carolina.

The person boomed as the strongest conservative primary challenger to "Terrible Thom" Tillis is conservative Congressman Dan Bishop.

Dan Bishop for US Senate 2026! DOWN, DOWN, DOWN with that despicable backstabbing worm Thom Tillis. NEVER TILLIS !

Tillis showed his true colors in announcing to one of the worst swamp organizations in DC instead of to voters in this state. Tillis is a spear carrier for the amnesty hounds at the US Chamber of Commerce, and ignores the opinions of NC voters on illegal immigration issues. Tillis is all for the special interests and cares nothing for the voters and the taxpayers. No one who believes in protecting America's borders should ever think about voting for Thom Tillis.

Dan Bishop is solid on fighting illegal immigration and would make a great senator.

Thom Tillis has a horrible voting record on tax and spend legislation. No way, I would consider voting for that scumbag, or for any Democrat scumbag either. On the other hand, Dan Bishop is a great congressman and would make a great senator. Run, Dan, Run.

If Tillis is the nominee again, I will have nobody to vote for in the US Senate race. I absolutely will NOT ever vote for Tillis again. I still feel unclean for having held my nose to vote for him the last time. And I will certainly not vote for a Democrat.

Tillis or a Democrat? Damn the difference. I would just sit that one out.
