North Carolina is considered a swing state and Republican U.S. Senator Thom Tillis is working hard on re-election.
This year he's up against Democrat Cal Cunningham.
In a recent one-on-one interview with News 13, the senator discussed several issues Americans are facing currently. One of the most important issues Senator Tillis addressed is the struggling economy.
Full interview with Thom Tillis (Part 1):
Tillis says he supports stimulus programs and getting relief to families. He also says he worked hard on a bi-partisan basis to get the almost $3 trillion 'CARES Act' implemented.

"Now we have to go back and tune it," Senator Tillis told News 13. "We have got to have a followup to the cares act. We have got to be sure that people who are struggling pay for food, pay for rent, pay their mortgages, that we give them the resources that they need. And make sure the businesses, the employers, have a safety net as well."
