Under the Dome

Doug Berger vs. Glen Bradley?

State Sen. Doug Berger, a Democrat from Franklin County, said today that he's going to run for re-election in the new state Senate district that includes a swath of eastern Wake County.

The Senate District 18 is a more Republican district than the one three-term incumbent is used to running in. But Berger says he has a good shot at keeping the seat.

Rep. Glen Bradley, a Youngstown Republican, has announced he's running for the seat. Berger has come out swinging, calling Bradley "a Tea Party extremist."

There's a long way to go before the election. The redistricting plans are being challenged in court. And who's to say there won't be a Democratic or Republican primary here?

Socialist Berger

This is full irony considering that Doug Berger was the former chair of the Socialist Party at his college.  But of course, the News & Observer staff isn't capable of doing some research...even when it could make for a better article.
