Dear Sen. Hagan:
Must you alienate your base this early in your career? Word from the DCist is that you’re considering siding with those who would deny the people of the District of Columbia a vote in Congress.
I hope this rumor is nothing more than that – a rumor.
Isn’t it ironic that the people of the District of Columbia have fought and died so the people of Baghdad and Kabul can have something the U.S. Congress is willing to deny its own citizens: namely, voting representation in their legislatures?

In fact, Sen. Hagan is a Presbyterian elder and Sunday School teacher at the First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. She’s also a tough campaigner. Today, Sen. Hagan released a response ad and she filed a lawsuit against Sen. Dole and the Dole Campaign.
We need more fighters like Kay Hagan in the Senate. Make that happen and contribute to Kay’s campaign: www.kayhagan.com.
Here in Virginia, we’ve seen our share of candidates who have used religion to divide and conquer the electorate. Congressman Virgil Goode’s ignorant, demogogic rants against Congressman Keith Ellison immediately jump to mind.
But nothing the bigotted Virgil Goode has done compares to the latest advertisement released by Sen. Elizabeth Dole in North Carolina in her campaign against State Senator Kay Hagan. Continue reading
