He represents the state's 30th Senate district, which includes Stokes, Rockingham, Caswell, and part of Surry county.

Senator Berger was first elected in 2000. He rose to Senate minority leader in 2004, and was elected President Pro Tem in January following the November elections that put Republicans in charge of the legislature for the first time since the 19th century.

Senator Berger earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Averett College, and a law degree from Wake Forest University.

He lives with his wife, Pat, in Eden, where he practices law. He has three children - Kevin, Phil Jr., and Ashley - and four grandchildren.
