Kay Hagan says she would have voted against a Wall Street bailout.
In a late-night press release, the Democratic Senate candidate said she would not have supported a bill that passed the Senate last night because it did not do enough for "everyday North Carolinians."
"It's a fix for Wall Street, not Main Street, and this isn't a situation where we can afford to only address half the problem," she said in a statement. "I've said that any new bailout legislation must add real accountability, oversight and protections for Main Street to ensure we never find ourselves in this position again."
Earlier in the day, Hagan repeatedly dodged taking a position on the bailout, saying she didn't want a "rush to judgment." At 5:13 p.m., U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's staff sent out a release saying she would vote against the bailout.
The Senate voted to pass the bill around 9:22 p.m., 74-25, though a procedural vote took place around 9:07 p.m. Copies of the final version of the bill were floating around Capitol Hill by noon.
Hagan's release followed at 10:16 p.m.
Update: An earlier version of the post misstated the exact time of the vote.
