RALEIGH, N.C. -

 The U.S. Senate race is at the top of North Carolina's ballots this fall, and Republican nominee Thom Tillis is helping lead the GOP's charge to get out the vote.

The state Republican Party held a kickoff event Saturday at state GOP headquarters in Raleigh for its grassroots efforts to elect Republicans up and down the party's candidate slate. Tillis and other party notables spoke at the event.

"The campaign goes all over the state 24/7 until a Tuesday in November," Tillis said. "We're working hard."

Tillis is seeking to unseat Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan. Her seat is considered one Republicans need to retake control of the chamber.

The Hagan and Tillis campaigns Friday confirmed dates for two of three scheduled televised debates. The debates held by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation are set for Sept. 3 and Oct. 7.
