The Candidates

U.S. Senate:


Senator Kay Hagan (D)

  • Kay Hagan supports increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 so that North Carolina workers can get ahead, not just get by.
  • She voted to restore unemployment benefits so that North Carolinians who lost their job through no fault of their own could continue to look for the jobs they deserve.
  • She supports equal pay legislation because she understands that paying women less than men hurts every working family in North Carolina.

Speaker Thom Tillis (R)

  • Thom Tillis refused federal money to expand Medicaid – effectively denying access to affordable health care to 500,000 North Carolina citizens.
  • He backed voter ID legislation that made it more difficult for younger, poorer, minority, and senior citizens to exercise their right to vote.
  • He led the General Assembly in slashing unemployment benefits for 170,000 North Carolinians – a move so drastic North Carolina became the only state no longer eligible for federal benefits.
