How CAFTA passed Top Worldwide:
In the end a 40-minute delay in the vote was broken after the Republican leadership convinced Representative Robin Hayes of North Carolina to switch his vote to yes.
North Carolina is a textile state, and most of the NC delegation voted "No," though others were able to be elsewhere at the key moments when they were supposed to vote, or when their votes turned up (allegedly) not to have registered.

Expect to hear about a fierce primary and a tight general election for Mr. Hayes in NC-08.
