Not that they actually adhere to any socially conservative positions when elected, but they will gladly utilize them to maximum effectiveness.


The shift in approach is an uneasy transition for the House speaker, who is not a loud voice on social conservative issues compared to Brannon, a Cary obstetrician and tea party candidate who wants to outlaw abortion, and Mark Harris, a Charlotte pastor who helped lead the 2012 campaign to ban gay marriage.

Instead, Tillis has preferred to talk about the economy, whether promoting his record of tax cuts or eliminating regulations.

The change comes as Tillis, who is leading in polls and fundraising, tries to pull away from Brannon and reach the 40 percent of the vote needed to win the nomination outright. Republican strategists say a July 15 runoff would cripple the nominee’s chances in November, though a rightward shift too far may hurt him as well.
