This evening, Democratic U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and Republican Speaker of the North Carolina House Thom Tillis will square off in their first debate of the campaign season.

The much-anticipated first debate between Senator Hagan and Speaker Tillis will be broadcast on WUNC-FM and on television outlets across the state. It begins at 7:00 p.m.

The race for Hagan's seat is expected to be the most expensive in the history of the state. So far, the candidates and independent groups have spent thirty million dollars, much of which has gone toward television ads that will grow even more ubiquitous as the race goes on.

Issues that the candidates are expected to tackle include the Affordable Care Act and the decision not to expand Medicaid. North Carolina's schools and teacher raises will surely feature in the debate as well.
