Sen. Thom Tillis previews first presidential debate
WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - The eyes of Capitol Hill and the nation will be on Cleveland tonight
That’s where President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will square off in their first debate at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
They’ll tackle questions dealing with their records, the supreme court, coronavirus, the economy, race and violence, and election integrity.
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) argues President Donald Trump has a strong platform to stand on.
“I think community safety is really becoming top of mind for people in North Carolina, I’ve done 65 telephone town halls for COVID, and invariably people are starting to ask questions about fearing for their safety," said Sen. Tillis.
The president will likely once again be fielding questions about his taxes tonight – after the New York Times reported Trump only paid 750 dollars in taxes in 2017 and 2018.
Meanwhile, voting is already underway in North Carolina.
And further down the ballot, Sen. Tillis' own race with Democrat Cal Cunningham could influence which party controls that chamber next year.
