North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is returning from Washington to attend the opening of a new hangar at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
Hagan will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the hangar Friday morning and view the new facility. She will also visit with base leaders to discuss the new joint strike fighters that have been allocated to Cherry Point.
The new hangar will be used for maintenance on V-22 Osprey
Hagan has vowed to maintain a stronger presence in North Carolina after arguing in her campaign last year that previous Sen. Elizabeth Dole had lost touch with the state and didn't spend enough time here. Hagan will spend the remainder of the weekend in North Carolina, looking at office space and interviewing potential staff.
