Q4: Corporate PACs Continue to Prop Up Sen. Tillis

Feb 04, 2020

Senator Thom Tillis, a Big Money 20 incumbent, received a total of $238,600 from corporate PACs in Q4

In 2019, Tillis received over $900,000 from corporate PACs

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) took $238,600 from corporate PACs, including $26,000 from Big Pharma. Over the course of 2019, Tillis took a whopping total of over $900,000 from corporate PACs. Tillis’ reliance on corporate PACs underscores his campaign’s lack of support from North Carolinians and his dependence on corporate special interests.

“Senator Tillis has worked to advance corporate special interests in Washington over North Carolinians. Now, in the midst of a tough reelection, Tillis is relying on them to boost his flailing campaign. North Carolinians know these contributions are why their voices are not heard in Washington,” said End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller.

ECU’s Big Money 20 campaign is focused on holding incumbents who benefit most from the corrupt establishment in Washington accountable by showing voters how politicians put corporate special interest donors ahead of the people they’re supposed to represent.

ECU is a traditional political action committee (PAC) with more than four million members, including 91,500 in North Carolina.
