North Carolina Democrats' votes against healthcare push labor to form party

Washington Post, April 19, 2010

In North Carolina Frustrated liberals and labor organizers are taking aim at the Democratic Party, rushing to gather enough signatures to start a third party that they believe could help oust three Democratic congressmen, the Washington Post reports. The third party, North Carolina First, could endanger the Democratic congressional majority by siphoning votes from incumbent Democrats in November's midterm election, potentially enabling Republican challengers to pick up the seats. Organizers say they are fed up with Democrats who did not support healthcare reform, the Post reports.
