First, North Carolina Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan skipped a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on ISIS for a fundraiser. Then she skipped a televised debate and gave her opponent, Thom Tillis, an hour of uninterrupted, statewide TV time. Next, she skipped the opportunity to condemn the injection of the race card in her race. Then Hagan skipped a chance to say if she thinks President Obama is a strong leader.
Now she’s skipped the chance to grade herself as a senator.
In an interview with CBS affiliate WFMY in Greensboro, N.C., Sen. Hagan was asked to grade her first term in Congress.
“You know, I think the partisan gridlock has certainly frustrated me,” she said. “It’s frustrated me …”
Before she could finish, the question was repeated — “But personally, what would you give your performance?”
“You know,” she said, “I’m not gonna give myself a grade.”
The RealClearPolitics average of polls for the race currently has North Carolinians giving Sen. Hagan a grade of 44.9 percent, compared to her opponent’s 43.3 percent.
