Democratic U.S. Senator Kay Hagan officially filed for re-election in Raleigh yesterday.
She visited the state Board of Elections with her husband and campaign workers, who then stood behind her as she spoke with reporters about her race to keep her seat in the Senate.
Hagan was surrounded by photographers and videographers from the moment she entered the Board of Elections building in Raleigh.
"Good afternoon everybody," the senator said as she walked in the door.
