Berger announces campaign staff

GOP candidate for the Sixth Congressional district Phil Berger Jr. today announced his campaign staff. Veteran political operative Matt Mercer was named political director. A Madison native, Mercer has worked on campaigns across the state since graduating from UNCC. Scott Miller, a recent graduate of High Point University, and Julie Tesh, a graduate of UNC Greensboro in Political Science and Communication, were named field directors.

Berger, the Rockingham County District Attorney, faces a slew of opponents in the race to replace retiring Congressional icon Howard Coble.
