House Speaker Thom Tillis dismisses all talk about the 2014 U.S. Senate race -- but that isn't deterring his supporters.
Ed Broyhill, the son of former U.S. Sen. Jim Broyhill, endorsed Tillis' non-campaign to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan on Sunday. In a post on Facebook, Broyhill wrote: "My family and I endorse Thom Tillis for the U.S. Senate in 2014. It's not too early. Jump aboard now."
The post generated dozens of "likes" and comments. Broyhill is a prominent Winston-Salem political name. Ed Broyhill ran unsuccessfully for the Congress in 2004.
The early endorsement allows Dome to dust off the U.S. Senate race logo -- two years before the race even starts. Yee haw.
