Kay Hagan Avoids Obama Again

Just last month, Sen. Kay Hagan’s (D-NC) spokeswoman downplayed accusations that Hagan was intentionally avoiding President Obama, stating, “she’d certainly have him campaign for her.”

“But Republicans are distributing a WTVD news clip that says Hagan didn’t answer directly when asked if she would appear alongside the president. That’s nonsense, says Hagan spokeswoman Sadie Weiner. Hagan ‘has said she’d certainly have him campaign’ for her, Weiner said.”

This Wednesday, President Obama is visiting North Carolina to deliver a major policy speech on the economy. So… is Hagan going to be seen standing beside Obama?

Nope. Instead, Hagan is going to stay in Washington, D.C.

Just last year Hagan also refused to attend an Obama event in North Carolina.

However, on October 17, 2011, three years away from her re-election campaign, Hagan traveled to Asheville, North Carolina for President Obama’s American Jobs Act bus tour.


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I want to recognize a couple people who are here. First of all, one of the outstanding senators in the United States Senate, your Senator, Kay Hagan, is in the house.
