2020: Democrat Cal Cunningham Makes Tillis Challenge Official

RALEIGH – What was rumored months ago is now official; former one-term Democratic North Carolina state senator Cal Cunningham is running for United States Senate in 2020, hoping to challenge incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (RINO-NC). That is, assuming Tillis makes it through his Republican primary challenge.

Cunningham released the following ad launching his campaign, and trying to convince voters of the Old North State that they’d rather have a senator that openly works for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, instead of one that merely does it indirectly.

This isn’t the first time Cunningham has run for U.S. Senate. He ran in the Democratic primary in 2010, but came up short despite big backing from the D.C. establishment. That record is not lost on Republican insiders that hope to retain the seat in 2020.

It goes to show that Democrats don’t offer a whole lot of ‘new’ anything – their ideas are as failed as they are old, and their big recruit candidates are simple retreads of the same old tire.

As of now, Cunningham will face a couple long shots for the Democratic nomination, but he could get bigger competition soon. Two former state treasurers — Richard Moore and Janet Cowell — are considering a run as well.
