Republican Thom Tillis defeated Kay Hagan in one of the closest elections last year for U.S. Senate. One of Tillis first notable comments as a senator shows that, maybe he wasn't the best choice. He recently told a group that places should be able to "opt-out" of making their employees wash their hands. He said the "market" would fix the problem, not government regulations, but to be honest I've seen some rather awful restaurants. I recently took my fiancee to a hot dog/burger place, and while waiting for our food I took a look around and realized that I had made a mistake. If they "opted out" I would of told them to keep the food.
