Sen. Kay Hagan was undergoing emergency eye surgery this morning in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Democrat, who is seeking re-election in a competitive race this year that Republicans have targeted as a pickup opportunity, was one of several senators to miss votes during the Senate’s marathon sequence late Thursday.

Hagan spokeswoman Amber Moon said in a statement that the senator could not further delay departing for the medical treatment.

“Senator Hagan learned last week that she needs to undergo an emergency procedure to correct an eye condition that has worsened over time. In order to be present for work this week in Washington D.C., she delayed the procedure for as long as possible. However, she was not able to put it off any longer and was forced to leave last night to be in North Carolina for the procedure first thing this morning,” Moon said. “The Senator will have a reduced schedule for a few days, but we expect that by the middle of next week she’ll be fully recovered and back to full speed.”

The Senate held a series of consequential votes on immigration, veterans’ health and transportation before the chamber emptied for August recess. The next roll call vote is expected on September 8.

    A vision problem! So that’s why Kay Hagan never reads any bills and just votes how Harry Reid tells her to.

    She’s getting the plank removed from her eye in hopes that no one will point out her hypocisy over Super PACS

    It won’t help her. There are none so blind as those who won’t see.

    Many things we rely on today, such as antibiotics and software, were developed by people who could only take the chance that others might find their products useful.

    Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
