NC-Sen: Tillis (R) Busted Taking $20,500 From Big Pharma To Push Bill Opposed To Capping Drug Prices

From WBTV Investigates:

Senator Thom Tillis accepted more than $20,000 in campaign contributions from political action committees tied to pharmaceutical companies within two weeks of sponsoring a bill related to drug prices in late 2019.
Tillis was an original co-sponsor on the Lower Costs, More Cures act, which was introduced on December 19, 2019.
It was similar to a competing bill that had been introduced earlier in the year by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, except that it omitted a key provision opposed by the pharmaceutical industry that would cap drug prices at inflation.

They site Open Secrets for reports showing Tillis receiving up to $20,500 in donations from Big Pharma on December 16th, 18th, 20th, 26th, and 31st. FYI, two new polls continue to show Cal Cunningham (D. NC) and Joe Biden in the lead in North Carolina:
