State Senate leader Phil Berger is airing a TV spot beginning this week highlighting the passage of the elections bill this past session.
The advertisement raises the question: Berger is running for U.S. Senate, isn’t he? The Eden Republican has yet to announce a decision about seeking the GOP nomination to run against Sen. Kay Hagan.
But the TV ad looks very campaign-like. It features Berger as a key player in the voter ID bill, which he was, and tosses in the requisite barbs at Hagan and President Obama.
The Washington Post’s GovBeat blog says Berger aides put the pricetag on the TV spot at more than $100,000, running in the Greensboro market.
