Governor takes on drugstore chain

The war between Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and the state's dominant local drugstore chain keeps escalating.

The war between Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and the state's dominant local drugstore chain keeps escalating.

Last week, Illinois-based Walgreens pulled out of Delaware's Medicaid program to fill prescriptions for the poor after complaining the state wasn't paying enough. The chain also urged customers of its 60+-store Delaware subsidiary, Happy Harry's, to write to Markell and their state reps in protest.
