Thom Tillis, apparently acknowledging the tightening race for the NC GOP US Senate nomination, hiked up his big boy pants and agreed to participate in WRAL's debate after previously declining.
State House Speaker Thom Tillis says he will participate in a WRAL News debate on April 23.
Tillis initially declined the invitation, citing a scheduling conflict.
What was his scheduling conflict? An earlier story reveals that:
"We worked to try to accommodate the WRAL debate but had a long-standing commitment we couldn't break" [said Jordan Shaw, Tillis' campaign manager]
Apparently the long-standing commitment could be broken after all, 'cause Thom just broke it, after saying that he couldn't. In other words, Thom's campaign was lying.
But we all knew that. That's what Thom does.
