MoveOn pressures Hagan on public plan

From NBC's Mark Murray
Earlier this morning, we warned you to expect MoveOn and other progressive groups to press North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan, after she suggested she wasn't ready to support a public/government option to compete against private health insurers.

Well, right on cue, here's MoveOn:

Given recent comments showing that Sen. Hagan is not supporting the public health insurance option, MoveOn.org will be making clear that our 115,000 members in North Carolina -- many of whom volunteered for or donated to her campaign last year -- believe the public option is the heart of true health care reform. We'll run ads in North Carolina and D.C. asking that she advocate for the public option and support the President in truly solving the nation's health care crisis.
