Graham : Mitch McConnell and NRSC to Host D.C. Fundraiser for ObamaCare Sympathizer Thom Tillis

WASHINGTON, March 24 -- FreedomWorks issued the following news release:

Tonight, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters is hosting a fundraiser for North Carolina moderate and Senatorial candidate Thom Tillis. Headlining the fundraiser invite was a "who's who" of beltway establishmentarians, including Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Lamar Alexander, and Senator Richard Burr. Attendees must pay a minimum of $1,000 per PAC or $500 per person to rub elbows with the D.C. elite.

According to the Washington Post, (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/03/21/nrsc-chairman-obamacare-has-helped-dramatically-expand-senate-map/) NRSC Chairman Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) explained today that playing in races like this one are a priority because the "map and opportunities have expanded dramatically in a year, in part because of the consequences of the Affordable Care Act."

This is an ironic statement, given that Thom Tillis effectively endorsed ObamaCare as a "great idea that can't be paid for." (http://www.freedomworks.org/content/thom-tillis-calls-obamacare-unaffordable-%E2%80%9Cgreat-idea%E2%80%9D)

"A lot can be learned about a man by looking at the company he keeps," commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks for America. "While fiscal conservative Greg Brannon is meeting with grassroots activists from across the state of North Carolina, Thom Tillis will be in Washington D.C., rubbing elbows with the establishment Republicans who failed to take a stand in the battle to defeat ObamaCare."

"North Carolinians have to decide, do you want a Senator like Greg Brannon who will fight alongside conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul on the Senate floor to defeat ObamaCare? Or do you want a Senator who schmoozes alongside progressive Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lamar Alexander at swanky cocktail parties?"
