Statement from Senate Leader Phil Berger on Tonight’s Results

Raleigh, N.C. — Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released the following statement regarding tonight’s election results:

“For the sixth consecutive election, voters made a clear choice in support of the Republican platform of low taxes, expanded school choice, and large investments in education and teacher pay. The Senate Republican majority will continue to deliver on those promises.

“I hope over the next two years we see a departure from the divisive partisan lawsuits that have hamstrung attempts at good faith negotiations between Republicans and Democrats in the legislature and the executive branch.

“Congratulations to tonight’s other North Carolina victors, including Gov. Roy Cooper and Mark Robinson.

“I consider my relationship with Minority Leader Dan Blue to be among the most cordial and productive between opposing leaders in any state in the country. I look forward to continuing that warm relationship in spite of our political differences.”
