CQ: Hagan Has Dole 'Playing Defense'

A fresh story from Congressional Quarterly details the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina.  A few highlights from Marie Horrigan.  Full story here.

  • CQ's projection of the North Carolina US Senate race moves from leaning Dole to tossup.
  • Recent polls indicate a very competitive race.
  • Dole has been ranked the 93rd most effective Senator.  Hagan on the other hand has been ranked in the top 10 as a North Carolina State Senator.
  • Fundraising:  78% of Hagan's money has come from donations within North Carolina, compared to just 41% for Dole. Hagan has raised $1 million in online donations alone.
ElectBlue, on August 26th, also projected this race as too close to call.
