McCrory, Burr, and Tillis Are All Aboard The Trump Train
As leader conservative and Republican figures condemn Donald Trump's disgusting attacks on Khizr Khan, who lost his son in combat, it's worth remembering that all of NC's leading Republicans: McCrory, Tillis and Burr have all pledged to support Trump and campaign at events with him.
U.S. Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis said Wednesday that they will gladly campaign with Trump this fall.
"We know how many states are going to go, but I think there are seven or eight that he can tip the scales in most of them," Tillis said.
Fifth District Congresswoman Virginia Foxx said she believes Trump reflects a conservative electorate.
"I think he's going to be a big help for North Carolina, and I actually think he's going to do well all across the country," said Foxx, who initially backed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for president.
"I think this is going to be an election that's a choice between the status quo and change, and what I see in America is an outpouring of support for change," said Burr, who, like Foxx, will be on the ballot with Trump in November.
