WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- One day before the run-off election, New Hanover County Commission Candidate Brian Berger is on the record saying all of the other County Commissioner support him and not incumbent Bill Caster.

This morning on "The Morning Beat with Chad Adams" on The Big Talker FM, Berger said, "All of the other Commissioners, including Jason Thompson and Ted Davis, who are Republican, have been very supportive of me... All the Commissioners feel that I'm more honest and would be more sincere and easier to work with than Mr. Caster, who has been very disingenuous during the whole taxing and spending issues."

Not true say Commissioners Bobby Greer and Ted Davis. Davis says he's not endorsing either candidate and Greer has openly supported Caster.

Last week, Berger accused Caster and his campaign of planting a letter to the editor in the Star News. When we asked Caster about the letter Wednesday, he said he didn't know anything about it. But after we found an email on the county email server from David Benford with the letter attached and encouraging Caster to find someone to sign it and send it to the paper, Caster fessed up and apologized for "misleading" us and blamed it on a busy week.
