- Update, Nov. 5 2008 -
We won! The final vote was 53-44, Hagan. Nice work everyone; our dollars helped here. Did you see those "rocking chairs" commercials? One way or another, we helped put them on the air.
Kay Hagan has been a North Carolina State Senator for 10 years where she's earned high marks from non-partisan groups for her effectiveness in pushing through bipartisan legislation, including bills providing health care for poor children, college tuition assistance, improved body armor for NC Nat'l guardsmen, hurricane relief, and balanced budget legislation. She's a good progressive, especially for North Carolina. Her opponent, the incumbent Elizabeth Dole, is a go-along-to-get-along, do-nothing, old-south Republican who's spent 40 years in DC and voted with Bush 92% of the time. Hagan has been running strong against Dole over the past few months, coming to within a few points in the latest polls. Hagan is being outspent 3 to 1, and she needs our help to get her message out against this thoroughly entrenched incumbent.
