Senator Hagan Heading To Iraq & Afghanistan

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan and two of her Democratic colleagues are traveling to several countries including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan to get a firsthand update about the political and military situation in the region.

A spokeswoman for Hagan's office said she began her trip Friday but couldn't give itinerary details except that she'll return before Easter. Hagan is traveling with Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Sen. Ted Kaufman of Delaware.

The three senators will meet with foreign leaders, U.S. military commanders and soldiers from their states currently serving overseas.

Hagan is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee making her first trip to Iraq. She's previously visited Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    What a useless senator. She does nothing for NC.

    Please vote this loser out - how did she ever get in? Elizabeth Dole at least responded (however lethargically) to her constituents - I don't think Hagan has figured out what a "constituent" is? She has not responded to ANY of my calls, letters or emails. Can we revoke her first time senator priveleges? She needs Obamacare for herself - and all that it entails. What a useless person who purports to represent North Carolinians. Is she from . . . . . . somewhere else?

    Hope they leave her there, she is no use here. She will not even talk to the voters in NC. Won't answer phone, emails or letter. Waste of tax payer money.

    It speaks much of Kay to have voted in favor of the health care reform. Her son attends UNC School of Medicine, so his salary may be a little less than it would have been had this bill not passed, but at least he won't have to deny patients certain medications/treatments due to cost.

    She must have gotten a pass from her master Harry Reid. Too bad she can't stay there.

    She thinks by going to visit our troops overseas she'll win some support from patriotic Americans; guess again Hagan - we can see right through you and your tricks.

    Kay probably feels safer with the military protecting her in that battle zone. Here in NC she would have to defend her self for her actions, or lack of actions. What a hack.
