Raleigh – PBS NewsHour political analyst Mark Shields revealed exactly why Senator Thom Tillis earned a self-funding primary challenger who is already spending money on TV ads, noting that Senator Tillis “caved like a $4 suitcase” on the president’s emergency declaration.
The comment came during a discussion of Senator Burr’s subpoena of Donald Trump Jr., but also succinctly summarized what people across North Carolina now know about their junior senator – he’s a spineless Washington politician who will put his reelection effort and political career before what’s best for North Carolina. His weak flip-flopping is defining his reelection campaign and fueling backlash from North Carolinians of all political backgrounds.
Judy Woodruff ended the segment saying, “I’m thinking of a $4 suitcase.”
So are we, Judy, so are we.
