WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- US Senator Kay Hagan rallied supporters in Wilmington Saturday.
The Democrat spoke with supporters about her opponent, NC House Speaker Thom Tillis, and his impact on education in North Carolina. She says there's a big contrast between her and Tillis, especially when it comes to the topic of education.
"For five year our teachers didn't get a pay raise, and boy, do our teacher deserve a raise," Hagan said. "By gutting our education, that means fewer teachers, larger class sizes, outdated textbooks. To me education in North Carolina is sacred."
Sen. Hagan says she will be reelected for a second term in the US Senate.
