In this Wednesday, April 16, 2014 photo, Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., listens during an appearance in Durham, N.C. Hagan has tried for her first 5 1/2 years in the U.S. Senate to persuade North Carolina voters that being in the middle of the road is a good thing. Hagan released her first commercial in her bid to win re-election, a statewide radio spot criticizing Tillis, even though he's just one of eight candidates in the May 6 GOP primary.
