Super PAC Spends $1 Million Against Thom Tillis

A Democratic-oriented super PAC reported late Friday that it has spent over $1 million against a Republican U.S. Senate candidate.

The Senate Majority Fund reported that it spent $1,018,130 against Thom Tillis, R-N.C., in the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina. The Super PAC reported paying $999,000 on 3/26 to Waterfront Strategies (DC) for media buys as independent expenditures opposing Tillis. The PAC also paid $19,130 on 3/26 to SKDKnickerbocker (DC) for media production costs as an independent expenditure against Tillis.

Tillis is Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives and is running against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., in the 2014 election.

    Thom Tillis is the speaker of the house in NC. At this time he is running in a tight race in the state primary for the Republican party position on the November ballot for the senate seat against Sen. Hagan. The only way Tillis is going to win is because the “party machine” is behind him. The individuals I have talked with don’t want him. The other 2 leading candidates are Rev. Harris and Dr. Greg Brannon. Either one would be better then Tillis, but even Tillis would be better then Kay Hagan.

    While altruism enabled our ancestors to survive in the bands and troops of primeval times, altruistic cooperation cannot work outside of small homogeneous groups that share common ways and perceptions.

    Brannon is bought and paid for too. We need a senator who will do the will of the people of North Carolina (kay Hagen) not the will of special interests groups who have them bought and paid for.
