Baptist preacher Mark Walker of Greensboro easily beat Phil Berger Jr., the rising-star son of NC Senate Republican leader Phil Berger Sr., in the primary run-off for the NC-06 Congressional slot.
That was not supposed to happen.
Berger Junior had called Walker "unelectable" and "unfit to hold any office." Good to know. Walker will now face Democrat Laura Fjeld in November.
Democrat Josh Brannon won the primary run-off tonight in the 5th Congressional District, which was supposed to happen. He'll now be facing the Miss Manners of the U.S. Congress, who has over $2 million, cash on hand (and her hand is always out for more).
