WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- He still has not filed to run, but Congressional candidate David Rouzer picked up a key endorsement. NC Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger threw his support behind Rouzer today.
Rouzer, a Republican from Johnston County, is running for the Republican nomination in the newly-drawn 7th District.
Berger says he's worked closely with Rouzer in the state Senate and called him one of the chamber's "bright young stars."
So far only Republican Randy Crow has filed for the seat currently held by Democrat Rep. Mike McIntyre.
