RALEIGH – U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) announced Monday via Twitter that he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer and plans to have a related surgery in North Carolina next week.

Tillis was reelected to a second six year term in the U.S. Senate in 2020, one of the more closely followed races in the nation.

We here at First in Freedom Daily commonly share critiques of the former N.C. Speaker of the House; critiques that are warranted in that they relate to politics and policy.

As it relates to Sen. Tillis’ health, to Thom Tillis as a person, we have nothing to offer but sincere well wishes for a speedy recovery.
