Coble endorses Phil Berger Jr. in GOP runoff


GREENSBORO, N.C. — On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Howard Coble endorsed Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger Jr. in the Republican primary runoff to fill Coble’s seat in the Sixth Congressional District.

Coble said Berger is the “right conservative for the job” who has “the experience, knowledge and determination” to be effective in Washington.

After 30 years in office, Coble is retiring.

Berger Jr., the son of state Senate leader Phil Berger, faces Baptist minister Mark Walker in the July runoff.

The winner of the GOP primary faces Democrat Laura Fjeld, a retired University of North Carolina system administrator.

    My experience w. Berger has been everything but noble,coble. He doesn’t prosecute child molesters. Ask my daughter…he sure hasn’t even considered her feelings in over a year. All Berger supporters, I pray for your children. Plz pray for mine. She’s n constant trauma therapy,and is forced to relive,y cz Berger keeps throwing her case away. Plz vote for Mark Walker
