CLAYTON – United States Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) was the featured speaker at an event for Chief District Court Judge Paul Holcombe last Friday night at The Farm at 42.

Senator Tillis who was first elected in 2014 and reelected in 2020 spoke about his service in Washington on multiple committees including Armed Services, Veterans’ Affairs and the Judiciary.

Following his remarks, he answered questions by those in attendance.

As part of the event Senator Tillis announced his endorsement for Judge Holcombe in his campaign for superior court saying, “I am proud to endorse Paul Holcombe for Superior Court Judge. His intelligence, experience and work ethic are exactly what we need on the Superior Court Bench.”


  1. Good riddance Tom, I wrote to you that I would note support you if you voted against the wall, ( which you were going to do) and I , unlike politicians, keep my word.

    • That is just one of many reasons he needs to go!! Now that he endorsed Holcombe I won’t vote for him. Don’t like his opponent either… we need better candidates!

    • Good riddance? Are you just glad he left JoCo or do you know something that we don’t about his political future?

  2. But not one thing in the news about the big event at The Farm in Selma this past Saturday. I thought it would at least bring some negative news.

  3. He is elected for six years and faithfully depends on the voter shiort attention spands. He is as much a closet Democrat as he can openly be. If it had not been for Trump on the ballot the last election we would had liberal progressive playboy Cal Cunningham instead. Thom doesnt have to worry about your vote again until 2028.

  4. terrybarnes you are so very right. He is a Democrat in sheep’s clothing. I absolutely do not support him and never will. I voted for his opponent int the primaries. I am glad that Burr is retiring. I liked him in the beginning, but he has turned into a RINO. We desperately need term limits.
