Surprise! Another vulnerable Democrat Senator up for re-election this year decides to distance herself from our toxic celebrity President:

Washington (CNN) – Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina, who finds herself in a tough race for re-election this year, will not attend a speech President Barack Obama is delivering in her home state on Wednesday.

A spokesman for Hagan confirmed to CNN on Monday that because the “Senate is in session on Wednesday,” the Democratic senator will not attend Obama’s event on the economy in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Senators and representatives from the same party as the President generally attend White House events in their home state or district. And Hagan’s absence at the event has already received attention from national Republicans hoping to unseat the senator in 2014.

“Hagan may not be in North Carolina on Wednesday, but her presence will be felt since she can’t hide her support of disastrous policies like ObamaCare and the failed stimulus,” Brook Hougesen, National Republican Senatorial Committee press secretary, said in an email to reporters. “Kay Hagan has put the President’s reckless policies ahead of the people and she simply can’t hedge or hide that from North Carolinians.”

The White House is “defending” her decision to stay in DC – noting that the Senate is currently in session, but she’s been here before to greet him when the Senate was in session. We all know the reason why she’s avoiding him.  One word: Obamacare.

You can run, Kay, but ya can’t hide!
