North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is sitting on the most expensive hot seat in Senate history.

Spending in her Senate race against Republican State House Speaker Thom Tillis topped $100 million, according to the Sunlight Foundation—$10 million more than the second most expensive Senate contest this year in Colorado, and roughly $30 million more than the priciest Congressional race in history before 2014.

Hagan and Tillis have been running neck-and-neck for months. In the latest CNN/ORC poll Friday, Hagan’s lead was within the margin of error, 48 to 46 percent. But the closeness of the race doesn’t fully explain the costs. Across the map, endangered Democrats and Republican hopefuls are locked in competitive contests within the margin of error.

The truth may be something that the media may be finding hard to swallow and in fact with all the media spin voters may be feeling a little beligered with all the switch and bait ads as well as the outrageous contention that seems to be a big part of this race.

With Millions and millions of dollars being poured into this election you have to wonder what the voters will do, many expect to see a different result that what the media is churning out.

That might make for a great Crow Eating News cycle in the coming days but the truth is that the media hardly ever admit when they are wrong.   In the words of Stephen King ” they have forgotten the faces of their fathers”  The media appear to be so out of touch with the people that they cannot identify with the mood of this nation and that is why it is more important than ever to get out and vote.
