North Carolina: New NRSC TV Ad Hits Dole Foe on Taxes

Now it’s the Republicans’ turn.

In the latest salvo in the party-committee proxy war in the Tar Heel State, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is airing television ads this week criticizing state Sen. Kay Hagan’s (D) record on fiscal issues.

Hagan, who will face first-term Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R) on Nov. 4, has been the ongoing beneficiary of the $6 million-plus television blitz paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

“Taking a closer look at Kay Hagan? She’s been in the state legislature for a decade,” the narrator states in the new NRSC spot. “Hagan helped double the state debt, gave us the highest tax burden in the Southeast, higher income taxes, sales taxes, too.”

“Now Kay Hagan wants to go to Washington?” the narrator asks.

Hagan will campaign in the state this weekend with ex-Sen. Max Cleland (D-Ga.).
