Vulnerable Sen. Kay Hagan to raise money Sunday in Tampa
U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan will be in Tampa for a fundraiser, reflecting the North Carolina Democrat's ties to the state and her vulnerable status.
Hagan grew up in Lakeland, attended Florida State and got her start in politics by helping her uncle, former Gov. Lawton Chiles.
Sen. Bill Nelson, who plans to attend, has a keen interest in his party retaining control of the Senate; he is poised to take the chair of the Commerce Committee from retiring Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W Va.
