RALEIGH - Thom Tillis ran for the U.S. Senate in part on the accomplishments he said the Republicans in charge of North Carolina’s General Assembly pledged to complete while he was House speaker. Now he’ll get the chance to show whether he can get things done he promised on the campaign trail in Washington. Tillis unseated Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan on Tuesday, narrowly winning a race that attracted more than $100 million in spending from the candidates and outside groups and that proved to clinch the Senate majority for the GOP.
