    Grassroots Conservatives Make 72-Hour push for Greg Brannon, while Chamber of Commerce Backs “Big Business Tillis”

    Originally Published in FreedomWorks For America on 4/29/14.

    The Chamber fears Greg Brannon will end their sweetheart deals in Washington

    Washington, DC- As part of a series of ads promoting big government Republicans, the Chamber of Commerce will run ads backing establishment moderate Thom Tillis in the North Carolina Senate race. Meanwhile, FreedomWorks for America activists will fight back with a 72-hour “Get Out the Vote” push on the ground in support of true fiscal conservative, Dr. Greg Brannon.

    FreedomWorks for America President Matt Kibbe commented:

    “The Chamber of Commerce is backing Tillis because they know that Dr. Greg Brannon will end the collusion between big businesses and big government. While the Chamber continues running ads that dictate what North Carolinians should believe, FreedomWorks for America will be empowering local activists from the ground up, with tools and materials to speak with neighbors about why Greg Brannon is the strongest conservative choice for the Senate. Dr. Greg Brannon has what ‘Big Business Tillis’ and his Chamber friends will never be able to buy: authentic conservative grassroots support.”
