RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - With polls showing a dead heat for the U.S. Senate race in our state, Democrats are turning to the most popular Democrat on the scene to help Kay Hagan's re-election effort.

Former President Bill Clinton will campaign for Hagan in Raleigh on Friday.

His appearance follows his wife's stumping for Hagan last weekend.

Strategists say the appearance of both Clintons shows the Hagan campaign hasn't sealed the deal with voters and that the Clintons are an effort to turn out base voters who aren't enthused to vote.

Thom Tillis, the Republican nominee, had his own big name on the stump this week as well. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney campaigned for Tillis in Raleigh on Wednesday.

Polls show the race, which includes Libertarian Sean Haugh, is a dead heat.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - He won North Carolina in 2012 and now Mitt Romney is hoping to bring his winning good fortune to Thom Tillis. The presidential nominee will campaign for Tillis in Raleigh on Wednesday.

Tillis is seeking to oust Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan from the Senate job. Libertarian Sean Haugh is also in the race.

Polls show the race is a dead heat.

The Romney visit isn't the only support he's giving to Tillis. A new ad featuring Romney is hitting the airwaves this week, sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Last weekend, Democrats brought their won heavy-hitter to North Carolina. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was with Hagan in Charlotte on Saturday.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The State Board of Elections today completed an audit of more than 10,000 registered voters with questionable citizenship status, finding that 1,425 currently registered are likely non-citizens.

The agency analyzed data provided by the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, according to a statement.

“We are working to ensure that no ballot cast by a non-citizen will count in this or any future election,” said Board Executive Director Kim Westbrook Strach, in the statement. “Our ongoing partnership with DMV strengthens the integrity of our elections process and security of the voter rolls.”

Early voting began October 23. State Board administrators have prepared guidance instructing elections officials to challenge ballots cast by those identified as non-citizens.  The challenge process will provide notice and an opportunity for the voter to present proof of citizenship.

It is a crime for any non-citizen to register or to vote in North Carolina.
