North Carolina Troopers Association Endorses Senator Tillis

September 2nd, 2020

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The North Carolina Troopers Association today endorsed Thom Tillis for re-election to the U.S. Senate.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the NC Troopers Association,” said Senator Thom Tillis. “The brave men and women of our state’s law enforcement put their lives on the line every day and during a time when their jobs are under attack, they still courageously answer the call of duty. I am grateful for all that our law enforcement does to protect our communities. As long as I am in the Senate, I will work to provide them with the best possible resources so that they can protect North Carolinians.”

“Senator Tillis has been a champion for law enforcement during his time in the Senate and we’re pleased to endorse him for re-election,” said retired Sgt. Daniel Jenkins Jr, President of NC Troopers Association. “While his opponent wants to make it easier to sue police officers and weaken their ability to do their jobs, Senator Tillis is focused on providing law enforcement with the tools and resources they need to keep our communities safe.”

Throughout his time in public service, Senator Tillis has fought on behalf of law enforcement and most recently, co-sponsored the Justice Act, a common-sense police reform bill. The historic measure was blocked by the Democrats and opposed by Cal Cunningham.

While Senator Tillis is fighting to better support, equip and train law enforcement, Cal Cunningham wants to make it easier to sue law enforcement and has embraced protestors who want to “abolish the police by any means necessary.”
