Sen. Thom Tillis fights to keep seat amid global pandemic and more

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Congressional recess doesn't mean rest for U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC). 

The Republican incumbent is running in one of the most highly-competitive U.S. Senate races while negotiating the Congressional response to a global pandemic. WFMY News 2's Meghann Mollerus talked one-on-one with him via Zoom, where he called to reconvene the Senate ASAP and get a deal done with Democrats.

"I support the measure that we're trying to put into place, which has more targeted stimulus. It has an extension for unemployment until the end of December. It has additional resources for the Paycheck Protection Program, which has saved hundreds of thousands of jobs in NC," he said.

From DC to the Triad, Tillis has visited some of those businesses and heard outcry from others still closed under NC's extended Phase 2 of reopening.
