GOP's Tillis comes under pressure for taking on Trump
By Scott Wong and Alexander Bolton - 03/13/19 04:17 PM EDT

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) is under fire from conservative activists for supporting a Democratic effort to block President Trump’s emergency declaration to fund his border wall.

The activists have also raised Tillis’s legislation to shield special counsel Robert Mueller from any interference by Trump.

Some county GOP party leaders are openly calling for Tillis to face a primary challenge.
