The Washington Stand’s Ben Johnson reports that the North Carolina GOP will consider a proposal to strip U.S. Senator Thom Tillis of party funding should he face a primary opponent following his vote in support the DisRespect for Marriage Act.

Tillis may experience a statewide censure from the state party for backing the bill, which forces states to recognize whatever another state defines as marriage.

Tillis has been censured by about one-third of county GOP committees statewide, according to Reuters.

The Washington Stand points out the effort comes just after Sen. Joni Ernst was censured by a 16th Iowa county GOP central committee, citing The Iowa Standard.

Senators Cynthia Lummis and Richard Burr have faced criticism for their support, as well as Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Congressman Tony Gonzales.
