A Congressional Quarterly analysis shows Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan voted in favor of President Barack Obamas position 96 percent of the time in 2013.
But the newspaper noted in a blog post that Hagan went against the grain more often than all but three of her Democratic colleagues. The percentage is based on votes in which the Obama administration declared a preferred outcome.
North Carolina Republicans this week said Hagans votes are in contrast to her recent unwillingness to appear with the president when he visited North Carolina last month.
Despite Kay Hagans best efforts to fool North Carolinians by hiding from President Obama, records dont lie, and Kay Hagans record shows she has been a rubberstamp for Obamas liberal agenda, voting with him over 96 percent of the time, said N.C. Republican Party spokesperson Daniel Keylin.
CQ Roll Call 2013 vote studies also showed that Hagan voted with the Democratic Party 86 percent of the time on the more than 200 votes that were decided mostly along party lines last year.
The newspaper noted in a blog post that Hagan went against the grain more often than all but three of her Democratic colleagues.
The Washington Posts congressional votes database shows Hagan voted with her party 90 percent of the time of 313 votes since the beginning of 2013. Republican Sen. Richard Burr voted with Republicans 91 percent of the time.
