The N.C. House's Conservative Democrats

You may want to make yourself a strong beverage with the flavoring of your choice before reading Lynn Bonner and Dan Kane's report in today's N&O about the loose group of conservative Democrats who hold the balance of power in the N.C. House. Bless their hearts, these dozen faint Dems (or feint Dems) helped block an increase in the state's minimum wage and a moratorium on the death penalty. They call themselves "the business Democrats," by which we guess they mean "the business-as-usual Democrats." Jim Harrell of Surry County is one of them.
