Darn! It looks like there won't be any third SEIU-sponsored party in NC

Blame North Carolina's tough laws making it very difficult for third parties to get on the ballot.
A defiant move by one of the nation's most powerful unions to help oust Democrats who voted against the health-care bill by establishing a third political party in North Carolina has failed because organizers did not collect enough signatures to qualify for the November midterm elections.

The Service Employees International Union and its North Carolina affiliate did not gather the 85,000 signatures by Tuesday's deadline.
