Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) ducked a recent question about her reelection plans from Politico.

But the senator recently gave a Hendersonville radio station a straight answer: "Yes, I do plan to run for reelection," she said

Hagan, who unseated Republican Elizabeth Dole in 2008, is likely among the senators most at risk in 2014. Her approval ratings are low, and Republicans did well in North Carolina in this month's election. The state gave its 15 electoral votes to Mitt Romney, elected a Republican governor and netted the GOP at least three seats in the House.
