Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) in support of Cal Cunningham’s (D. NC) U.S. Senate campaign:
National Republicans know they could lose North Carolina. North Carolina U.S. Senator Thom Tillis' approval rating plunged to 33 percent just a short time ago.
So how worried are Republicans? One dark money group just spent nearly $2 million to stop Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham's momentum — and now he's at risk of being outspent by President Trump's cronies.
We can't let special interests buy North Carolina's election for one of President Trump's most loyal Senators.
Last year, Senator Tillis promised to stand up to President Trump, but then voted to let the President divert over $80 million in federal investments from North Carolina projects to build his ineffective border wall. The Fayette Observer called it an “Olympic gold flip-flop.”
Since then he has continued pandering to Trump Republicans, announcing he'd vote to acquit President Trump before impeachment hearings even began.
Meanwhile, Cal Cunningham, a former state senator and veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been working hard to win the support of middle-class families in North Carolina. He moved the race from “Leans Republican” to a “toss-up,” but he needs your help to keep that momentum building as Republicans spend millions against him.
