House Speaker Thom Tillis Endorses Chairman Robin Hayes’s Re-election

Says GOP Chief Has Outstanding Vision, Unifying Leadership
Representative Thom Tillis, Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, endorsed Robin Hayes for NCGOP Chairman today.  Tillis, who this year became only the second Republican Speaker since the nineteenth century, was effusive in his praise for Chairman Hayes.  “Robin Hayes is an outstanding North Carolinian and we are fortunate to have a leader of his caliber as our Republican State Chairman,” Tillis said.  “Chairman Hayes has the vision we need to build an unstoppable political organization which can defeat the Obama-Perdue Machine in 2012.  On a personal note, I appreciate the role Robin has played in helping unifying the Republican Party because we must work closely together in order to be successful.”

Chairman Hayes expressed his gratitude for Tillis’s endorsement.  “Speaker Tillis is doing an outstanding job of using our conservative governing philosophy to reform state government,” Hayes said.  “The North Carolina House is more efficient and more responsive than ever under the Speaker’s leadership and I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with him as we prepare for the 2012 elections.  I appreciate Speaker Tillis’s support.”

The Hayes campaign continues to gain support across North Carolina.  Chairman Hayes continues to travel to all corners of the state as he articulates his vision of an improved NCGOP grassroots organization and well-funded campaign operation in 2012.”

    I will never forget that Congressman Hayes cast the deciding vote that passed CAFTA after he promised that he would not vote for that legislation. He voted no left the chambers and then returned with less than a minute remaining and changed his vote to Yea. He sold out his vote and I will never support him in any capacity.
