Patients First rallies at Monkey Junction Friday

Video

Body

A group of fired up voters gathered Friday morning in Wilmington, for what they called the Patients First Bus Tour.

The event was organized by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

While there wasn’t the melee seen at other rallies around the country, there was some hostility in the crowd toward our reporter, who arrived toward the end of the event; a clear sign folks are passionate about their stance on healthcare reform.

“I do not believe in socialized medicine, no way is this anything other than socialized medicine, and I feel like we are giving up something,” said protester Vicki Williams.

The folks at this rally are against government run healthcare.
