CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Former Secretary of State of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is urging North Carolina Democrats to re-elect Sen. Kay Hagan in a race that will help decide which party controls the U.S. Senate.

Clinton headlined a rally Saturday in Charlotte with Hagan, who is locked in a tight campaign against Republican Senate nominee Thom Tillis.

Clinton says the race will come down to turnout and asked Hagan supporters to take people to the polls.

The GOP has long listed North Carolina as a top target to help win back the Senate.

The campaign is considered the most expensive in the country when spending by Hagan, Tillis and outside groups is taken into account. The Center for Responsive Politics says the combined amount has now reached nearly $90 million.
