Legislative leaders together for a fundraiser

One of the side-questions going into the new legislative session is how Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker-designee Tim Moore will get along.

The Thom Tillis-Pat McCrory-Phil Berger interplay had a great deal to do with the tone and pace of the last session, and with the progress of several important bills, including the new tax code.

It looks like Berger and Moore like each other well enough now to hold a joint pre-session fundraiser and share the proceeds. The Moore-Berger fundraiser is in Raleigh on Jan. 13, the day before the session starts.

“Contributions of equal amount to each committee are requested in the following amounts: $5,000 - $2,500 - $1,000,” the invitation reads.
