North Carolina Democrat Verla Insko got some chuckles from some of her colleagues in the state Senate during legislative hearings on Obamacare after she asked about the percentage of prostate cancer patients that were women.

"What percent of the prostate cancer patients are women?" Insko, a state representative from Chapel Hill, asked Duke University research scholar Chris Conover during the hearing in Raleigh on Tuesday.

"I have no idea," Conover replied, as people in the room began laughing.

"I would guess zero," he added. "But I don't know that for sure."

Insko's question was captured by an America Rising tracker in North Carolina.
