Republican Cherie Berry is embracing her moniker as the Elevator Queen.
A new TV ad posted to her campaign website this week shows her talking from her picture inside the elevator. The 15-second spot starts with the sound of an elevator and touts workplace safety.
Berry is mocked on Twitter by an account @ElevatorQueen. In an interview, Berry said she enjoys reading her parody self, especially when it interacts with the faux accounts for Gov. Bev Perdue (@GovBevPerdue) and Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler (@SexyTractorMan). "I don't know who's doing it but it's pretty funny," she said.
Berry's rival in the Nov. 6 election is Democrat John Brooks.
