Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan's campaign is complaining about dirty campaign tricks even as her allies are doing similar things to her Republican opponent in Raleigh.
A opposition researcher from a firm called America Rising came to the North Carolina freshman senator's open office hours Wednesday armed with a video camera, reports BuzzFeed. The tracker asked Hagan for her opinion on Gov. Pat McCrory's budget proposal. Such a move apparently breaks the unwritten rule of no tracking in the halls of Congress.
From BuzzFeed: “[It’s] really over the top and beyond the traditional boundaries,” said Sadie Weiner, Hagan’s communications director. The Carolina Coffee session is a nonpartisan event, and Weiner said the presence of a political tracker “is disrespectful to the constituents who don’t expect to be filmed and caught in political crossfire when they come to meet with their senator.”
