North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) leads a crowded Republican field for the right to face Sen. Kay Hagan (D) in November, according to a new survey conducted for a super PAC backing his campaign.
Tillis scored 27 percent of the vote, compared with 16 percent for physician Greg Brannon and 10 percent for state Baptist Convention President Mark Harris. A handful of other candidates received only single-digit support.

We need to keep the Little Lindsey Graham wantabe Tillis under 40% in the primary to force him into a runoff where the conservative vote and energies will coalesce around the conservative Greg Brannon. We must keep Tillis from going to the Senate where he would reinforce the RINOs.
I think Tillis would lose the general because he wants to “fix immigration” and “fix Obamacare”. That’s what Kay Hagan is trying to do.
Because Tillis loves Obamacare and is a huge RINO.
BRANNON FOR SENATE
There you go. The Chamber has said their #1 priority is amnesty for illegals. So much so that if any conservative wins a Republican primary by running against it, they will ignore everything else and back the Democrat opponent.
psnip] Tillis was unanimously re-elected Speaker of the House in January 2013. The state house overseen by Tillis has enacted a complete restructuring of the state’s tax code, including a reduction of personal and business income taxes, elimination of the estate tax, and a cap on the gas tax. It has also passed legislation to sunset existing state rules and regulations and limit new regulations to a ten year duration, unless renewed by the state government. The legislature has also approved a new voter identification law, and passed an amendment restricting marriage to the state constitution that was approved by voters in 2012. [/snip]
“Tillis said the Republican-led Legislature shouldnt follow the lead of other states, which enacted tough laws against illegal immigrants.” The other thing were going to do is send a very clear message to Washington that they can make our job a lot easier if they would deal with the issue that theyve kicked down the road Republicans and Democrats for many, many years.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow...

I personally don’t hate Tillis for just the reason’s you’ve mentioned, but I DO like Brannon much better and know he’d make a better more conservative/constitutionalist U.S. Senator!
I went to middle and high school with Tillis in south Nashville, (along with our other notable classmate, Dave Ramsey). He is a good guy and and conservative. NC could, and has done a lot worse. His little brother was also my marshal arts instructor.
Well, Tillis may be a “good guy” BUT he’s for Amnesty and, once he got to the Senate, it’s clear he would be a reinforcement (e.g., voting for the GOPe portion of the Senate Republican caucus) for the RINO wing. That is a deal breaker.
the Ted Cruz, true conservative, portion of the Republican caucus needs to be reinforced with conservative who will stick with their conservative principles—and not sell out to the GOPe. Greg Brannon is that true conservative who we need to rally around.
