Vice President Joe Biden will be in Chapel Hill Friday afternoon to raise money for Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C.
A spokeswoman from the vice president’s office confirmed that Biden will be at an event for Hagan and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
A representative from Hagan’s campaign office did not return calls for comment. Hagan is running for re-election in 2014.
She is being challenged by five Republicans so far — N.C. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis; Mark Harris, a Charlotte Baptist pastor; Greg Brannon, a gynecologist from Cary; Heather Grant; a Wilkesboro nurse; and Bill Flynn, a radio host based in Winston-Salem.
A recent Public Policy Polling poll found that Hagan is almost tied with competitors.
