Great news !

It was a sound defeat for Bill Caster. There is more work to be done on Mr. Berger's behalf to pull him through in the fall. I do not view Mr.Caster's record as one of accomplishment. Good riddance Mr.Caster . Hopefully , you will not venture into politics anymore. Your negative campaigning hurt your cause.
