‘Circle of Death’? (Seriously ????) Drive-Bys, GOPe fight to save Tilli$$

  Never mind the polling that shows he’s got 40 percent support with 30 percent undecided in a FOUR-WAY race.  Or 90% name Id and 45% re-elect numbers.   Never mind his 59% conservative rating from Heritage Action or his 38% rating from Conservative Review….

Tilli$$$ 2020: Feel The Love

  You post an innocuous piece of pro-Trump propaganda and get blasted with 345 (and counting) nasty comments.  A handful of them appear to be liberals.  But quite a few look and sound like betrayed supporters.   Let’s go to Facebook, shall we? :  …

Tillis’s co-honorees at LGBTQ fundraiser help usher sweeping LGBTQ rights bill through US House. Will Thom help in Senate?
