Tillis Will Face Hagan in North Carolina

Thom Tillis (R) "scored a major victory on Tuesday night, when he won the GOP primary outright to become his party's nominee to challenge Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC), Roll Call reports.

"Tillis had 46% of the vote when the Associated Press called the race for him... He defeated Greg Brannon, an obstetrician aligned with the tea party who had support from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who had 27% of the vote, and Mark Harris, a pastor, who had focused his appeal on social conservatism and was backed by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who had 17% of the vote."
