I was struck by the illusion of humility captured in one of your quotes this morning:
"I got elected by 49 percent of the voters, but I represent 100 percent of them, and I want to make sure that they know that their feedback and their priorities are important,"
To put a finer point on it, you were elected by 49% of the 44% who voted, so you are correct in interpreting your victory as slim and your mandate as fragile. Indeed, you captured the lowest level of support in the history of senate races. But let's set that aside for now. You won.
I also too note of your happy-talk about bipartisanship and outreach, though I couldn't help but observe the incongruity in your comments:
Tillis promised to reach out to the 51 percent of the electorate who picked Hagan and Haugh. He said he will come back to North Carolina from Washington every weekend. He aims to connect as he sought to over the past few years as House speaker, he said.
As you "sought to over the past few years as House speaker"? Seriously? If that is your standard for engagement, we are well and truly screwed. You may have "sought" to connect, but as our friend Yoda has said so well, "There is no try." You either did it or you didn't. And trust me on this, you didn't.
