RALEIGH, N.C. — They may be going head to head for the first time Wednesday night, but Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican challenger Thom Tillis – as well as the groups that support them – have been busy lobbing criticisms back and forth all year.

That's given political reporters some time to fact-check many of these claims, which are likely to show up again in Wednesday's hour-long debate moderated by CBS This Morning's Norah O'Donnell.
