WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Senator Kay Hagan made a stop in the Port City to speak to seniors about the future of Medicare and Social Security. During the stop, she also spoke about not attending tonight’s debate and the the possibility of travel bans due to the concerns over Ebola.

Also on schedule tonight, a debate sponsored by the Charlotte Observer, The Raleigh News & Observer and Time Warner Cable News with republican challenger Thom Tillis. When asked why Sen. Hagan planned not to attend, she said that she only agreed to three debates with Tillis and she was focusing on campaigning until election day.

Senator Hagan also spoke about her thoughts on the Ebola crisis in parts of Africa and why she now supports a travel ban.
