WATCH:

WSOC ANCHOR BLAIR MILLER: When it comes to the president, so much in this race, your opponent has tried to tie you to the president, and he’s done that a lot. Do you think the president has done a good job?

HAGAN: You know, once again, this election is not about the president, he is not on the ballot. Speaker Tillis is trying to make that happen.

MILLER: But regardless of what your opponent is saying, do you think the president has done a good job?

HAGAN: You know, I think we look at what’s happened in our country today, whether it’s Afghanistan, Iraq, the issue right now in ISIS [sic], Ebola, there are so many things that have hit our country. And that he’s got a very, very difficult job. And I think everybody with a 24-hour news cycle wants instantaneous answers, they want everything they can go back and 20-20 hindsight is always sort of the answer. But I think he’s got a very difficult job.
