Fox confused me by their reporting.

I didn’t realize Tillis is the GOP-e candidate.

Brannon is our guy. Mybad

If I was voting in NC, I would vote for Tillis based on those comments. Able bodied adults on welfare are an anchor dragging the economic ship down.

The most prosperous country on earth right now is Singapore. Every 6th citizen is a millionaire. Highest concentration of prosperity on earth. Their welfare policy? ZERO benefits to able bodied adults! No food stamps, no unemployment either. Results is their unemployment rate is minus 40%. Which means there are 40% more jobs than there are adult citizens.

If Tillis wins in general, it is one more brick to remove Harry Reid form power as majority leader. So not all bad.

I agree with you. If Tillis holds on above 40%, he will defeat Kay Hagan in November!!! Look....I’m as conservative as anyone on this site.....but I also know the two “Tea Party/Conservative” guys has their fair shot at Tillis in the primary.

I cannot stand it when folks on this site don’t get their way....they say I hope he or she loses to the Democrat!!! For goodness sake....the country is at stake, and IMHO, whoever the primary victor is for our side gets every body’s vote!!!

If it comes to having Obama, Hagan or Tillis.....I’ll be going with Tillis!!! End of story!!!

I sincerely hope you never complain the next time Ted Cruz gets backstabbed in the senate by McConnell, or the next time the GOP help increase the debt, or when they refuse to fight the Democrats on anything. Tillis is another Lindsey Graham.

yes, because having a non-smirking fox news bureau is much, much more important than nailing the door shut on the obama agenda, getting to the bottom of fast & furious, the IRS scandal, and banghazi, and possibly even getting our health care back.

but as long as you’re happy in your irrational anger, everything should be just fine.

Oh, I forgot! Establishment senators like Tillis would be have a GREAT record of stopping liberals! I mean, just look at how they destroyed him by defunding Obamacare. Just look at how great they managed our debt under the Bush administration!

You truly know your stuff. I was wrong. We need 51 John McCains.

Yup, these will be the same idiots telling us once again how we have to vote for the latest "Lessor of two evils" GOP-E obamanation POTUS candidate that has lied, and cheated his way into the nomination. And then when that same progressive GOP Candidate (See Mitt Romney) inevitably loses, it will be this same group of losers blaming conservatives for the loss, even though the candidate will probably support abortion, the gay agenda, and probably won't be limited conservative either (Once again, see Mitt Romney).

So who you voting for next chance you get?

I'm asking honestly...because I'm always torn. Did I want an Obama or a Romney? I know Romney is a RINO....

But you know what....this time around...if the GOP runs someone for POTUS like Jeb Bush or Christy...I will NOT vote.

My rule of thumb is simple. I always vote for the most conservative candidate in the race.

In the primary, that was Brannon.

In the general, that is clearly Tillis.

I can’t imagine doing anything other than voting for the most conservative candidate in every election in which I participate.

They know it.

Their support of these back-stabbing pretend conservatives and their continual support for lowering the bar where conservatism is concerned in our candidates is one of the real reasons we lose and when we win, we're stuck with back-stabbing, Democrat-collaborating Progressive Trojan Horse candidates Like Mitt Romney, and now Thom Tillis.

The GOP-E might have won tonight, but Freedom, Liberty, and constitutional-based government lost.

What if the GOP candidate supports Abortion or Gay Marriage?

Do you consider yourself a Christian?

Where does your Christianity or your principles end and your politics take over?

Just where is the point in this political conversation do you take a stand for your principles?

There were several good candidates in the race for the Senate.

I believe the fact that he presided over the NC House with a Republican majority - a House that did many great things in the cause of conservatism. The dems are gasping and screaming. The NAACP can’t stop blustering. I think his work leading the legislature elevated him, even if he did receive endorsements from the establishment.

There is a large Karl Rove sympathizers club on FR who want all Freepers to come out and vote for their establishment turds, even after those establishment turds publicly state that obamacare is a good idea, publicly support Commie Core, support shamnesty etc. etc. etc.

They are the ultimate Fifth Column.

I REALLY dislike the Bush family. If Jeb runs, I will work as hard as I can in the primary to defeat him.

If I am unsuccessful, and he winds up being the most conservative candidate in the general election, then yes I will vote for him.

If he becomes President, and there is a more conservative candidate that challenges him in the primary in 2020, then I will work to get that candidate elected.

I realize this approach won’t work for some, but I have used it my entire life, and I never have any personal angst come election day.

No, it was compromising idiots like yourself voting for him in the Primaries and leading the GOP to believe that you would vote whomever they put up.

And it was Romney himself, whose own record declared him a lying Progressive Liberal pretend conservative.

Where do you draw the line bert?

When do you say enough is enough in the leftward drift of the GOP?

It certainly is not the total lack of limited government policy positions, they have none.

Apparently it is not Amnesty, because Tillis will be a reliable Amnesty toadie, that's why Rove and the others backed him.

Is it Abortion Bert, because Mitt Romney was all for Abortion.

Are you OK Bert with compromising on the Gay Agenda? Because a good part of the GOP is ready do that as well.

Is winning everything Bert, or do you ever really stand firm on conservative principles?!
