He was an outspoken critic of House leadership. Then-speaker Thom Tillis found him a primary opponent and helped knock him out of the House. Theam Thillis may have knocked Robert Brawley down, but they haven’t put him out.
In an email to supporters this week, Brawley confirmed his intention to file for the House District 95 GOP primary. (He was knocked out of that Charlotte-area seat in the 2014 primary by John Fraley.) Brawley, in 2013, racked up a respectable conservative voting record.
Brawley made waves on Jones Street by publicly questioning Tillis’s ethics, as well as the I-77 toll project that Tillis and Gov. McCrory have so passionately pursued.
