  • BAD NEWS FOR DEMS: KAY HAGAN WON’T RUN FOR SENATE IN 2016

    American Prowler ^ | 6.24.15 | Rachel Stoltzfoos
    Former North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan won’t run for Senate in 2016, disappointing Democrats counting on her to unseat Republican Richard Burr in what will be a major swing state race. Hagan was unseated by Republican Thom Tillis in 2014 after one term in the Senate, and has struggled in the polls since, but was the obvious pick to challenge Burr. She’s been calling donors and supporters to inform them she won’t run, reported Roll Call. Hagan performed relatively well in an election where Republicans secured big majorities in the House and Senate, and supporters figured she could unseat Burr...
  • TILLIS TO DEFEAT KAY HAGAN

    Despite the New York Time's prediction that Tillis will lose, Pundit Press projects that Thom Tillis will be the next Senator of North Carolina! With 94% of the vote in, Tillis holds a 48,000 vote lead over Hagan. Hagan's problem is that Wake County and Cumberland County, two heavily populated and heavily pro-Hagan counties, are 100% in. Hagan simply cannot make up that margin. On top of that, pro-Tillis counties, such as Cleveland and Davidson are under-reporting thus far. Hagan may gain a few votes, but Tillis should win by 20,000 votes or more.

  • Last minute surprise: North Carolina investigating Kay Hagan over ‘conflict of interest’

    Hotair ^ | 11/03/14 | Noah Rothman
    For about 20 minutes just after midnight on Sunday morning, The Charlotte Observer published a story detailing the apparent conflict of interest which could represent a violation of ethics by embattled Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC). The story revealed the details of an investigation into Hagan’s family, which received hundreds of thousands of dollars in stimulus grants – grants which Hagan voted for as a member of the U.S. Senate. The story was the first time that the state’s largest paper, The Observer, had informed their readers of the nascent controversy, but Tar Heel residents had to read it fast. The...

    North Carolina Democrats are taking to black churches today - and tomorrow for so called "Moral Monday" in an effort to drag Kay Hagan over the finish line before Republican Thom Tillis in North Carolina's Senate race. Hagan is a mere +1 in the current Real Clear Politics poll average, making the race too close to call. At churches across North Carolina, ministers took to pulpits Sunday morning with messages laced as thickly with pleas to turn out at the polls as they were with scripture. Led by the local NAACP, black churches have engaged in months of voter education...
  • Charlotte Newspaper Deep-Sixes Late Story on Hagan Self-Dealing Stimulus Scandal

    Newsbusters ^ | November 2, 2014 | 9:13 AM EST | Tim Graham
    The Charlotte Observer seems to be suffering from a vanishing-Kay-Hagan-scandal problem today. Republicans seized on a new story (cached here) on how Senator Hagan's husband benefited from the "stimulus" program. But the link went into "Page Not Found." Local TV station WBTV was reporting that the Hagan family self-dealing is under "further legal review." That's not a great story for the weekend before the election. Is that why its link broke?

    Former President Bill Clinton joined some of the biggest Democratic names in North Carolina to fire up a crowd of supporters here Friday afternoon with a simple message: Get as many people as you can to the polls, or else be prepared for Sen. Kay Hagan’s defeat and a GOP takeover of the Senate. Clinton — along with former Gov. Jim Hunt, the longest serving governor of the state, and Reps. David Price and G.K. Butterfield — hailed Hagan as the choice for working families, women and minorities. The former president name-checked issues like education, equal pay for women, voting...

    Kay Hagan, long viewed as perhaps the Senate’s most endangered Democrat, is still hanging in there in the closing days of North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely North Carolina Voters shows Hagan with 47% of the vote to Republican challenger Thom Tillis’ 46%. Three percent (3%) like another candidate in the race, and another three percent (3%) are still undecided.

    Republican Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Guillory was on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss his controversial new ad, in which he calls on black voters to “send Kay Hagan home.” In the ad, he says, "You see, black people are just being used by limousine liberals who have become our new overseers. We've only traded one plantation for another. You are not Kay Hagan's cause and you're certainly not her charity. You are just a vote. She has stepped off your backs to fame and fortune and left you behind on food stamps, deprived of the American dream." Tonight, he...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Okay, what is voter shaming? In North Carolina they're having the same problem, the Democrats are. It's not as pronounced as Colorado because Kay Hagan hasn't begun the silly implosion. Actually she has. It just hasn't registered yet. I mean, this woman, stimulus money went to her family? Her family is wealthy. She's flip-flopped on all kinds of things. The incompetence that is finally on display that is the Democrat Party, is just not a surprise to me, but so many people are finally seeing it. They're reacting in ways that we would all hope. "The North...

    In the contest for U.S. Senate in North Carolina, Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan, 43%, and her Republican challenger and state legislator Thom Tillis, 43%, are in a dead heat among North Carolina likely voters including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate or have voted early. Six percent are undecided, and 6% of likely voters with a candidate preference say they might vote differently. Hagan and Tillis maintain their support among their respective party’s base. However, Tillis leads Hagan among independents likely to vote. A gender gap also exists. Hagan has a 10 point advantage among women likely...

    SALISBURY, N.C. – Regardless of who wins, the North Carolina Senate race will go down as the most expensive, likely ugliest contest of the 2014 midterms, with more than $100 million spent and more than 90,000 ads – most of them attacks – aired across the state. Democrat Kay Hagan is fighting for a second term in the Senate. Six years ago, she famously beat Elizabeth Dole to steal the seat. Republicans are determined to win it back this year and have poured millions into the campaign of Thom Tillis, speaker of the North Carolina House. Until recently, Tillis remained...

    Apparently the Tillis campaign is now saying its internals show a tie. Normally I'd be disinclined to believe internals, but this would jibe with virtually every trend in the country now---NM, WI, IA, GA, and so on.

    Over the weekend, NBC News and Marist College dropped a bunch of new polls in key Senate races, just over a week before Election Day. Colorado -- The trend among pollsters here is consistent; Cory Gardner (R) has seen polls move in his direction pretty consistently. Except in Quinnipiac polling, which in September was an outlier and now has merged with the consensus. Georgia -- A lot of the polling in this race has been done by firms not in the eight we identified above, which is interesting in and of itself. But the SurveyUSA trend (and those two other...

    Former Secretary of State of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urged North Carolina Democrats on Saturday to work to re-elect Sen. Kay Hagan. Clinton headlined a rally in Charlotte with Hagan, who is locked in a tight re-election campaign against Republican challenger Thom Tillis. Before more than 1,000 people in a convention center ballroom, Clinton said the race will come down to turnout. And she asked Hagan's supporters to get voters to the polls on her behalf. "A race will often come down to who has more money, who is peddling more fear and who turns out. And there is nothing...

After the last debate, America Rising trackers caught Hagan skipping the post-debate press conference because of her inability to answer questions about missing Armed Services hearings on ISIS," claims America Rising.

    PPP's newest North Carolina poll finds a steady race, with Kay Hagan leading at 46% to 43% for Thom Tillis and 5% for Sean Haugh. This is the third month in a row that Hagan has held an advantage of either 3 or 4 points. In a two candidate race Hagan still leads Tillis 47/44, indicating that Haugh's potential 'spoiler effect' on the race is waning. Haugh's supporters only say their second choice would be Tillis by a 34/30 spread now, considerably closer than the difference was earlier in the campaign. Both candidates remain unpopular in the closing stretch of...

    Campaigning for the Senate in 2012, former Harvard law professor cum left-wing populist Elizabeth Warren touched down in North Carolina and told voters, “The game is rigged.” She was more right than she knew. As it turns out, North Carolina’s Democratic senator was doing some of the rigging. Now, Kay Hagan’s political future may depend on how voters react to the story. Hagan’s vote for the 2009 stimulus, coupled with revelations that the legislation resulted in taxpayer funding for her family’s businesses, has emerged as an October surprise in a race hitherto marked by her unexpected resilience in a difficult...
