    Berger and Tillis would even consider running for senate now that they're in the majority, but I guess they are.

    Anyway, if Berger were to run I'm sure his son Phil Berger, Jr. who is the District Attorney for Republican Rockingham County would run to succeed him in the state senate, but unfortunately at R+4 to R+5 (compared to the state) these are the sort of districts we'd need to win if we want to take the state senate and I don't see that happening.  Our bench for that district sucks too as everyone from Greensboro is going to be too liberal and the rest of the district is heavily Republican.  Our only shot would probably be to run a wealthy businessperson unless I'm just forgetting somebody.

      is term limited as House Speaker (or said he would only serve two terms at the outset) and will be stepping down at the end of next year's session.  So obviously if that's true he would want to move on to bigger things rather than stay in the House under a new Speaker.

      •  Ah I didn't know they had leadership term limits (0+ / 0-)

        The legislature is definitely not my area of expertise, especially when it requires thinking about all the crazy that's going to pass this session and how we basically cannot take it back for the foreseeable future.

      and I would love Hagan to stomp the daylights of Tilis or Berger statewide. In two years time hang McCrory around their necks and paint them with the state legislative brush.

      Im not concern about Hagan at all compared to our other seats.
