Dozens of protesters urged U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis on Tuesday not to confirm some of President Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees.
Activists with the voting rights group Common Cause North Carolina delivered 9,900 petitions to Tillis’ Raleigh office, asking that he reject the nomination of Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama as U.S. attorney general. The protesters also oppose businesswoman and philanthropist Betsy DeVos as education secretary and Republican Congressman Tom Price of Georgia as secretary of health and human services.
Tillis spokesman Daniel Keylin said the North Carolina Republican backs Sessions, although the two disagree on issues such as immigration reform and criminal justice reform.
