State House Speaker Thom Tillis defeated a crowded field of candidates in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate last night. Tillis received about 46 percent of the vote thereby avoiding the possibility of a runoff.
The mood was joyful last night at Thom Tillis’s victory party in Charlotte. Tillis smiled from ear to ear as he addressed his supporters with his wife, Susan, nearby:
"It’s unbelievable. Susan and I have been excited about the results we’ve seen coming across North Carolina. Y’all excited?"
