A bipartisan dealmaker emerges in Thom Tillis as legislators worry about impending turmoil.

Tillis has been at the heart of nearly every major bipartisan effort to emerge from the Senate. “He is an extraordinarily good vote counter,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said. A wave of retirements has taken many more bipartisan-minded lawmakers out of the chamber. N.C. Sen. Thom Tillis has worked on nearly every bipartisan piece of legislation to emerge from the Senate in the past year and a half. Tillis rejects the label of “dealmaker” and emphasizes the conservative stamp he’s placed on the legislation he’s worked on.
