NORTH CAROLINA -- Incumbent George Holding wins North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district.




George Holding has been in public life for some time, getting his first brush with politics in the 90s working for then Sen. Jesse Helms.

From there, he went on to serve in the US Attorney's Office, being appointed to the top position in 2006.

Holding says he had other plans when he left the US Attorney’s Office, but the opportunity to run for elected office couldn't be passed up. He says he tries to live up to his ideal of a good member of Congress by doing the work every day and by living up to advice he still remembers from his dad.

“One: Honesty. Even if it hurts. Always tell the truth,” says Holding.
