"You’ll notice it makes no mention of repealing Obamacare which would take real guts and surprisingly it even references the same radio interview in which Thom says Obamacare is a great idea that can’t be paid for," Brannon campaign manager Reilly O'Neal told The Plum Line's Greg Sargent. "What I’m not at all surprised to see is an ad touting his conservative credentials launch on April 1st of all days. Seems fitting."

The Tillis campaign responded that the House speaker strongly opposes Obamacare.

"Speaker Tillis obviously does not think Obamacare is a great idea, and in fact he wants to repeal it and will do so in the U.S. Senate," the Tillis campaign's Jordan Shaw said.

Tillis, actually, has said there are a few good ideas in the health care law but that he still opposes it over all.
