Planned Parenthood is planning to spend $3 million on voter mobilization efforts in North Carolina to help bring women to the polls for Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.Hagan faces a tough battle in November against GOP nominee Thom Tillis, the state House speaker.Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, told The (Raleigh) News and Observer that the Senate race there is the most important in the country. The contest already has seen more outside spending than any other.“North Carolina is a moderate state,” Richards said. “The positions that both Mr. Tillis has taken and some of the decisions by the state Legislature are really out of step with where mainstream North Carolinians are. So for us, this is an important state to make sure women know what is at stake in November and the differences between these two candidates.”
