CHARLOTTE, NC – U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, and several other Democrats up for reelection in 2014, have recently landed on the radar of several high-profile national news organizations for appearing to hedge on major issues including gun control, gay rights and the budget, WCNC reports.

Several major national publications have all reported on Hagan’s stances in recent days on the budget, gun control, and marriage equality.

The New York Times reported on gun control ads running in swing states, sponsored by New York City Mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg. The ads are intended to put pressure on some of the Senate’s most vulnerable Democrats.

Hagan’s communication director, Sadie Weiner, told the station, “As the debate moves to the Senate floor, Senator Hagan will be looking for a commonsense place to start this discussion, which could be background checks, so long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of responsible gun owners. Senator Hagan always votes for North Carolina first, and she will continue listening to the voices of North Carolinians.”
