NC-Sen: Desperate To Appeal To The MAGA Crowd, Tillis (R) Campaign Sells “Build The Wall” Santa Hats

trump 23

This is pathetic:

Instead of exclaiming “Ho, Ho, Ho” this holiday season, how about touting “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” on your Santa hat?

Instead of being on Team Rudolph in the reindeer games, how about pledging your allegiance to Team Kavanaugh in the judicial fight?

Or, as Sen. Thom Tillis’ 2020 re-election campaign puts it, you can just show your support for American border security with a “Build the Wall!” Santa hat. (It’s unlikely, though, to stop a border-crossing, red-suited, North Pole resident with wrapped gifts in hand.)

The North Carolina senator’s campaign is selling four Santa hats with these slogans, in addition to one with the words “Support Our Troops.”

Each hat, described as “premium fleece Santa hat with fur cuff and pom” and made in the USA is $25 on the campaign website.

The hats do not have Tillis’ name on them.

Clearly someone is worried about losing his primary:

U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis said on Monday he’s “very confident” that he’ll win any Republican primary he may be in — a reference to a North Carolina GOP congressman mulling an 11th-hour statewide challenge of him due to recently redrawn House maps.

Speaking to reporters after filing candidate paperwork at the State Board of Elections, Tillis said he hasn’t spoken to U.S. Rep. Mark Walker specifically about Walker’s immediate political future.

A Walker spokesman said last week that the Greensboro Republican may challenge Tillis for the party’s Senate nomination or one of two GOP House colleagues in their March 3 primaries.

Walker had announced in June that he wouldn’t challenge Tillis, but political recalculations are possible since the General Assembly redrew boundaries that would make it difficult for Walker to get re-elected in his 6th District. Tillis has received President Trump’s reelection endorsement.
