Tillis, Hagan gear up for 1st NC Senate debate

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina's leading U.S. Senate candidates are finally meeting in person to trade accusations and present their case to voters on live television.

Democrat U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican state House Speaker Thom Tillis are slated for three debates in the race for Hagan's seat. The first comes Wednesday evening at the University of North Carolina Television studios at Research Triangle Park.

The two won their respective primaries in May. Hagan and other Democrats have targeted Tillis as her top rival since he announced his candidacy more than a year ago.

Libertarian nominee Sean Haugh is not participating Wednesday. An attorney for the debate sponsor - the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters Educational Foundation - says Haugh didn't poll sufficiently to qualify.

How many viewers

will actually invest the time to watch, listen, and learn something about each candidate?

The winner heads to Washington for a 6 year term.

So how many will watch this versus some reality show or Oprah?

Hagan, el-Obamad, Marx, Castro

Hagan will go done with all the other failed Commies and Socialists. Hey libs, where's your socialist utopia? Where's all the coexisting in piece with radical islam? Why is the employment participation rate the lowest since the hay-day of Carter? Why are food stamp recipients at a historical high? Is it the Koch brothers behind all this?

Spoken (and written) like a true American

Can anyone doubt the need for public education after reading this?

(yes, the Koch brothers ARE behind it)

Your question should be "Can

Your question should be "Can anyone doubt the need for public education reform after reading this?" If I were a gambler, I would wager that the previous comment was from a person who is a product of public education.

insulting libs

Again with the personal attacks. Why you be hatin' on me? This is so typical of Obama zombies. Show up, hurl insults, and take off. I know the food stamp money doesn't go far at the strip joints. But don't take it out on me.

I would like to offer an

I would like to offer an apology. I had a completely different post in mind when I wrote that second sentence. In fact, it was a comment on a different article altogether.

Somehow I feel like this is

Somehow I feel like this is the case with almost all of your comments. :D

Like most extremists, neither one of your are right.

- "Koch brothers ARE behind it": Koch Industries provides jobs for over 50,000 people just in the U.S. alone. Looks like you had your head way up your behind on that one!

- "all the other failed Commies": Failed commies like Putin? He's humiliating us and we're (both parties, not just the President) are doing nothing. So much for failed commies.
- "Why is the employment participation rate the lowest": Our country's financial institutions and Wall Street were allowed to sell so many bogus securities the entire economy almost failed. Who let them do that? Both parties. Duh!
- "coexisting in piece with radical islam": We don't do that with "radical" Islam, but you're incapable of understanding that.

Both of you little children are great examples of why nothing gets done anymore. You'd rather rhetorically fight each other than actually try to find a real solution to anything. That would take real effort and you'd rather just spend that time feeding your own egos.

If either of you had even half a brain, you'd realize that you have both seen the enemy and it's yourselves!

"'Why is the employment

"'Why is the employment participation rate the lowest': Our country's financial institutions and Wall Street were allowed to sell so many bogus securities the entire economy almost failed. Who let them do that? Both parties. Duh!"

NOT an accurate statement. They were practically forced to do so by the Fair Housing act, the Reno Injustice Department threatening laws suites if they didn't, and government funded groups like ACORN picketing the places. Throw on top of that fascist entities like Freddie and Fannie buying up crap loans and putting tax payers on the hook for them and you have a government engineered collapse.

"'coexisting in piece with radical islam': We don't do that with "radical" Islam, but you're incapable of understanding that."

You have completely missed the point. Obummer was supposed to usher in a new era of piece with Christians and islamoterrorists/Democrat victim group living side by side all worshiping his holiness, el-Obamad.

Sometimes ....

Sometimes you're so full of crap, it's fun just watch you purge yourself. Like now.

Stop skulking around your radio waiting to copy down some "cool" phrase from Rush, and go out and play with the other kids.

Thanks, as usual, for completely ignoring my point that extremists, like you two babies, get in the way of getting anything done.

reality bites the dust

What makes me an extremist? I believe the 2nd amendment protects my right to keep and bear arms. Saddam Hussein did not. Do you agree with extremist me or Saddam.
I believe unborn child have a right to live. Hitler did not. Do you agree with extremist me or Hitler?
I believe a progressive income tax and death tax are destructive to an economy. Karl Marx supported both. Do you agree with extremist me or Karl Marx.

How am I getting in the way? There is plenty getting done in America. We just don't need government to dictate what does and does not get done. Except you. God forbid you you pull something off unless Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi bless it first.

I agree

I agree with all your comments with the exception of progressive taxing. Progressive taxation policies are the only way to keep taxes fair to all.

Flat tax rate is far more detrimental to lower income types than higher income types.

I know I don't need permission to live my life. Unfortunately, democrats feel you do.

Nice headline ....

Very clever. Possibly your best work yet.

Now ... Stop skulking around your radio waiting to copy down some "cool" phrase from Rush, and go out and play with the other kids.

wow

A compliment followed by an insult. I see you dodged the questions though.

Why

Why would you answer this troll? He is just an idiot.

Because I'm so cool.

Because I'm so cool.

typical lib

You've got the insults. Now answer the questions. Why are so few working under Obummer, and so many on government dependence?
