FIVE NC DELEGATES DITCH OBAMA NOMINATION VOTE
In a sign of how unpopular President Barack Obama is becoming in North Carolina, five North Carolina delegates did not show up to the Democratic National Convention to cast votes for Obama's nomination.
North Carolina cast 152 votes for Obama, despite having been awarded 157 delegates to the convention.
North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman David Parker brushed off the missing votes and saidthe five missing votes merely reflected logistical mishaps.
