North Dakota Dems Ask Conrad to Support a Public Option

The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party met in Fargo, N.D., on September 19, 2009, and passed a unanimous resolution directing the party's Executive Director to send a letter to North Dakota's Congressional Delegation, letting them know where the North Dakota Dem-NPL Party stands.
The Dem-NPL's Executive Director wrote a letter to remind the congressional delegation that the party voted last year to urge congress to enact universal, single-payer legislation. In the event the delegation member could not find it within himself to support universal, single-payer, they were asked to support the public option.
Of course, Conrad could argue back that he is supporting a public option, just the one he calls co-ops. Somehow I don't think the North Dakota Dems, who have actually demanded single-payer, would settle for that.
