WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Several healthcare reform supporters gathered Tuesday to show their support of President Obama's plan.

Members of the group Organizing for America collected thousands of declarations of support in the Wilmington area and presented them at Congressman Mike McIntyre's Office.

They say they are trying to set the record straight, because healthcare is not a privilege, it's a right.

Advocates for Organizing for America said they will continue to collect signatures from supporters across the state.
