Perdue Rolls Out Some Health Care Ideas For Campaign

Lieutenant Governor Beverly Perdue will offer a health care plan during her gubernatorial campaign.

It includes universal insurance for children, subsidized care for low-income parents and encourage small business coverage.

An estimated 1.4 million North Carolina residents are uninsured, including 250,000 children.

Perdue plans to kickoff her bid for the Democratic nomination at an event Monday in her hometown of New Bern.

Her expected Democratic opponent, Richard Moore, released a plan last week that would cover all uninsured children.
