Thom Tillis

In this May 6, 2014, photo Thom Tillis speaks to supporters at a election night rally in Charlotte, N.C., after winning the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Tillis’ victory in the North Carolina Senate primary has spurred both sides to immediately draw battle lines that could frame Senate races across the nation. After dispatching several tea party and Christian-right rivals on Tuesday, Tillis quickly cast Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan as an Obama acolyte. Hagan countered quickly, painting the North Carolina House speaker as the face of Republican extremism. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)
