The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of incumbent George Holding for his re-election campaign to the U.S. House of Representatives in North Carolina's 2nd congressional district on March 9, 2018.
A key member of the House Ways & Means Committee with a seat on the important Tax Policy Subcommittee, Mr. Holding is a Congressman who helps define economic and revenue policies. However, in a district that could become increasingly competitive if a redistricting change becomes necessary as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Wisconsin gerrymandering case, Mr. Holding must also work to strengthen his electoral prospects in this cycle.
George Holding was first elected to office in 2012. In Congress, he has a perfect 100% pro-business rating on the major rating indices since 2016, inclusive. The National Journal ranked him the 2nd most conservative member of Congress.
Prior to his election, Mr. Holding practiced law, served as a US Attorney, an Assistant US Attorney, and as a staff member for United States Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC).
