MILFORD, Del. - Only three days remain to signup for the Affordable Care Act.
Nationwide, more than six million people signed up healthcare. In the First State, state officials say only 6,500 Delawareans had signed up on the exchange, although it's unclear how many have actually paid for coverage.
WMDT caught up with Sen. Tom Carper (D) to talk about enrollments thus far.
"We've got a long ways to go," said Carper. "I'm pleased with people lining up in droves. We had a million-and-a-half people on the website [on Thursday], so just to consider that this was something right for them. My hope is a lot of people will sign up and get good healthcare."
Initially, state officials had hoped to enroll 35,000, but federal officials have set a much lower target of 8,000 Delawareans.
