Incumbent [[Kay Hagan]] is a [[Democratic]] senator in a red state, making her seat one of the most vulnerable in 2014. The unpopularity of [[Barack Obama|President Obama]]'s healthcare mandate, combined with it's poor implementation thus far, is likely to be a major issue that Hagan will have to overcome in order to win re-election.

Race background

Incumbent Kay Hagan is a Democratic senator in a red state, making her seat one of the most vulnerable in 2014. The unpopularity of President Obama's healthcare mandate, combined with it's poor implementation thus far, is likely to be a major issue that Hagan will have to overcome in order to win re-election.

Issues

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "No" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[23] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[24] Melvin Watt voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[25]

Voted "Yes" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[26] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Melvin Watt voted for HR 2775.[27]
