Thom Tillis is getting flack for comments he made in 2012. ???If you take a look, you mentioned the Hispanic population ???the African American population, there???s a number of things that our party stands for that they embrace,??? he said. ???I think we have to do a better job of communicating it.???
“The traditional population of North Carolina and the United States is more or less stable,??? he went on. ???It???s not growing.???
Apparently calling immigrant populations “non-traditional” is what people (or Tillis’ competition) have a problem with, despite the fact that these new groups are indeed not the demographic traditionally found in North Carolina.
