CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Former Secretary of State of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is coming to Charlotte to campaign for Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.

Clinton is scheduled to headline a rally on Saturday with Hagan, who is locked in a tight re-election campaign against GOP Senate nominee Thom Tillis.

The GOP has long listed North Carolina as a top target to help win back the U.S. Senate.

High-profile GOP politicians have been campaigning for Tillis, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The campaign is considered the most expensive in the country when spending by Hagan, Tillis and outside groups is taken into account. The Center for Responsive Politics says the combined amount has now reached almost $90 million.

Tillis was campaigning Saturday in Concord and Stanly County.
