Kay Hagan Bails on Senate Debate in North Carolina Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Oct 21, 2014, 08:39 pm

Sen. Kay Hagan (D.-N.C.) believes that she should campaign for re-election without debating her GOP challenger, Thom Tillis.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Thom Tillis got the stage alone Tuesday night in North Carolina's tight U.S. Senate race, the only candidate on a statewide television program in which he discussed views on abortion, global climate change and differences with absent Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan."

Tillis is quoted as saying that, "I'm disappointed that Sen. Hagan's not here."

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The program initially billed as a debate between Tillis and other candidates turned into a one-hour conversation with him and two reporters, as well as responses to emailed or recorded questions from the public. Hagan announced over the summer her decision not to participate, while Libertarian Sean Haugh didn't meet a 15 percent polling threshold to join Tillis."

Sen Hagan faces a swirl of allegations that she abused her powers to boost her husband's ailing business career.
