NRSC goes after Hagan

Along with its first ad in New Hampshire, the NRSC is also on air in North Carolina blasting Democratic state senator Kay Hagan for her fiscal record in the state Legislature.

“Budget writer Kay Hagan helped double the state debt. ... Hagan’s budgets pushed North Carolina to the highest taxes in the Southeast,” the ad says.

Hagan is challenging Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) in a race that has rapidly become one of the Democrats' top targets.

The DSCC has already been up with two ads portraying Dole as a consummate Washington insider and as an ineffective senator.
