Race is approaching (if not already at) tossup territory. I have a feeling that Ross '16 will be a redux of Hagan '08; a relatively anonymous Dem state legislator, who was considered a mediocre recruit without much of a chance at winning, starts polling very competitively just months before election day and pulls out a win over the Republican incumbent.

I agree with this. I think Ross will end up winning, very similar to Hagan's win in 2008.

You have to wonder how would Kay Hagan be doing right now if she's running again Burr.

RIP Sad

As much as I love her, I always said Democrats should run a fresh face this time. Her numbers were just too damaged from the 2014 campaign.

Hagan rematch 2020?

Wouldn't be surprised if Hagan tries again in 2020. I think Tillis will be quite vulnerable and Hagan could probably defeat him. And that'll be 6 years after her defeat, so any negative feelings about her may be forgotten. I think that's why Hagan didn't run this year, she's waiting for 2020. I think nominating Ross was a good choice, a fresh face against a relatively bland senator. Ross was never considered a star recruit, but I think that ended up being a positive thing for Democrats
