RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Kay Hagan re-election campaign is keeping up its attacks on conservative donors the Koch Brothers. A new fundraising email uses the men in an appeal for a $5 donation.

The fundraising e-mail is below.
"In North Carolina, "more than 90 percent of the ads that have run thus far are sponsored by outside groups, including dark money organizations such as AFP." - OpenSecrets, 4/30/14
Dear Friend,
There's only one way to be successful when your race is the top target of groups backed by people like the Kochs and Karl Rove -- build the best darn grassroots campaign in the country. 
That's what we're doing -- one day and one goal at a time. Today, I need you to help us reach our $280,000 goal before the FEC deadline that is coming up. If you can, give $5 or more right now.
The Kochs and the many arms of their special interest network are attacking me because I will never put their interests before the interests of North Carolina families. 
And please know -- no matter how much they spend, I will never forget that I work for middle class families in my state.  The Koch brothers' agenda is not my agenda.
As long as we keep fighting back -- as long as we keep hitting goals like our $280,000 FEC goal -- we will come out ahead.
The FEC deadline is coming up. Click here to make a contribution.
Thank you for all of your help this month.
Paid for By Hagan for US Senate, Inc."

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Americans for Responsible Solutions announced this week that it will run advertising in key U.S. Senate races, including North Carolina's. 

The group supports gun control measures. According to Politico, it was formed by former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot several years ago.
The newspaper says the group's multi million-dollar ad buy will include an ad supporting Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.
Hagan faces a tough fight for re-election in a purple state that voted for Mitt Romney in 2012. Polls consistently show North Carolinians oppose the Affordable Care Act -- Obamacare. Hagan voted for the massive overhaul of the country's health insurance/health care delivery system.
Hagan faces Republican Thom Tillis and Libertarian Sean Haugh.
