Thom Tillis Endorsed

Thom Tillis

Running for Senator from North Carolina

Game Changer PAC has Endorsed Thom Tillis for the Office of Senator from North Carolina.

Thom Tillis has only been in politics for a few years, but his impact on North Carolina is undeniable. Tillis, 53, helped lead a conservative revolution to claim control of the State House, held for generations as the bedrock layer of Democrat power in the Tarheel State.

As the House Speaker and leader of the first true Republican governing majority in a century, Tillis has turned conservative principles into real reform of state policy.

Tillis’ long career as a successful businessman has shaped both his conservative, free-market ideology and his results-oriented leadership style. After forcing through conservative regulatory relief, Tillis, in 2013, helped lead a bold tax reform effort that will reduce North Carolinians’ income taxes by $2 billion over the next five years. Experts predict this will take North Carolina’s business tax climate from the sixth-worst in the country to the 17th and will boost job growth.

Born into a working-class family, Tillis learned a fierce work ethic at a young age. He went to work immediately after high school and later worked his way through college with a combination of community college and extension courses, graduating at age 36. Tillis rose to the position of Partner in the national business consulting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers and advised North Carolina’s largest bank and other major national corporations.

Tillis defeated an incumbent Republican to join the legislature in 2006. He became Republican Whip as a sophomore and helped engineer the 16-seat gain in the 2010 elections that made the conservative party a majority and Tillis its presiding officer. Just one year later, Tillis was named national “Legislator of the Year” by the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council.

Tillis is honoring his pledge to serve only four terms in Raleigh and moving to take his conservative reform agenda to Washington. As North Carolina’s U.S. Senator, Tillis will push for repeal of Obamacare, a balanced budget, and conservative economic policy.
