Democratic Senate candidate Kay Hagan skipped tonight's debate in North Carolina. Here's video of the debate opening:
As the Republican research firm America Rising points out, Hagan's chair was left empty:
"Facing new reports of corruption and insider deals, Kay Hagan skipped tonight’s North Carolina Senate debate, leaving an empty chair to represent her campaign. After the last debate, America Rising trackers caught Hagan skipping the post-debate press conference because of her inability to answer questions about missing Armed Services hearings on ISIS," claims America Rising.
"This is not an image or video that conveys strength or confidence from Kay Hagan’s campaign 2 weeks out from Election Day."
