The Social Democrats' coalition in the key state of Lower Saxony collapsed, compounding the party's woes as it fights an uphill battle to unseat Chancellor Angela Merkel in next month's general election. The SPD, junior partners in Merkel's right-left national government, lost their ruling majority in the northwestern state of Lower Saxony when a coalition deputy jumped ship.
