Hagan to get help from VP Joe Biden in NC

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden will visit North Carolina later this month to help raise money for U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan's re-election bid.

A Hagan spokeswoman confirmed Monday that Biden was scheduled to speak Oct. 21 at a luncheon at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham. Tickets range from $500 to $10,000. The News & Observer of Raleigh first reported Biden's appearance.

Hagan is seeking a second six-year term in 2014. At least four Republicans are running for their party's nomination to challenge her, including state House Speaker Thom Tillis.

Tillis is getting fundraising help from Karl Rove, the one-time strategist for President George W. Bush. He'll be appearing at some Tillis events next month.
