Hagan Will Stay In DC While Obama Travels To NC

RALEIGH, N.C. One of North Carolina's most prominent Democrats doesn't plan to attend President Barack Obama's speech Wednesday in Raleigh.


A spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan said Monday the senator won't be at the president's event on the North Carolina State University campus because she'll be in Washington as the Senate meets this week.


The president is visiting North Carolina for what the White House calls "an event on the economy."


Republicans seeking to unseat Hagan in November are sure to point out her expected absence. The Greensboro lawmaker has been attempting to thread the needle politically by supporting the president while criticizing the administration on the health care law rollout.


N.C. State University is distributing event tickets to students.
