May 1, 2014
Raleigh, NC – Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush today endorsed Thom Tillis, conservative candidate for the United States Senate and current North Carolina House Speaker.
“Thom Tillis is a proven conservative leader with an impressive track record of results for North Carolina businesses and families,” said Governor Bush. “His work on key issues like improving education, keeping taxes low and eliminating burdensome regulations is a testament to his leadership as North Carolina’s House Speaker. It is critically important that Republicans win a majority in the U.S. Senate, and I am confident that the road to a majority runs through Thom Tillis in North Carolina.”
Jeb Bush served as Florida’s 43rd Governor from 1999 – 2006. He is recognized as one of the leading conservative voices in the nation on a wide-range of policy issues, including improving education for children across the nation.
“I am honored to have the support of Governor Bush, who I have respected and admired for several years,” said Speaker Tillis. “His record in Florida speaks for itself and he is one of the most respected leaders we have in this nation. I look forward to working with him during the course of the campaign as we continue to expand our network of conservatives who want to take back the U.S. Senate.”
