Gov. John Bel Ed­wards (D) on a call with re­port­ers on Wed­nes­day said he would “em­brace” his state’s pop­u­lar Medi­caid ex­pan­sion as he seeks reelec­tion in 2019. Medi­caid ex­pan­sion was a corner­stone of his 2015 cam­paign.

Ed­wards: “I have no prob­lem run­ning on that.”

Ed­wards also called on the Sen­ate to work with gov­ernors and Demo­crats to make the “ne­ces­sary” changes to the Af­ford­able Care Act. (Hot­line re­port­ing)
