Berger does not rule out Senate bid, takes shot at Hagan

State Senate Republican leader Phil Berger did not nothing to quell talk that he might challenge Democratic U.S. Senator Kay Hagan in 2014.

At a pre legislative session briefing, Berger acknowledged that he had been approached about running.

“I am focused on what we are doing in the General Assembly at this time,” Berger said, coyly declining to either cite his interest or to rule out running.

“I will leave it to someone else when it is time for someone to make a decision about running for other office,” Berger said. “I am not running for any other office at this time.''

But he did take a shot at Hagan, for not supporting a measure included in the so-called fiscal cliff measure that dealt with the long-term extension of unemployment benefits.
