Why I’m Supporting George Holding For Congress

There are 4 main reasons why I’m voting for George Holding in the Republican primary for North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district.

His Past

As a United States Attorney, his priorities included prosecution of violent felons, drug offenses, child pornography, and political corruption. Holding prosecuted a U.S. Congressman, the Speaker of the North Carolina House, a judge, a state senator, a state representative, and several sheriffs for political corruption and a major terrorism case.

He’s a Conservative

Heritage ranks George Holding at the top of the North Carolina delegation (tied with Walter Jones) as the most conservative. The American Conservative Union gave Holding a 100% rating for 2016.

He’s Trusted 

Holding has earned the endorsement of many grassroots Conservative groups. FreedomWorks, National Right to Life and Susan B. Anthony List. 

The same groups have called out Holdings opponent; Renee Ellmers. Ellmers made national news for leading the charge to derail the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Ellmers has been called a “traitor” by many pro-life groups for this.

He’s Effective

The biggest criticism Conservatives get, is that they are not effective. The main reason I support George Holding is that he stands on principles, and gets things done. Holding serves on one of the most powerful committees. The Ways & Means committee. He has also passed a greater percentage of the bills he has sponsored or cosponsored, even though he has served one less term than his opponent Ellmers.

It would be wise to vote for George Holding on June 7th. He’s a Conservative that gets things done!


Renee Ellmers’ Dirty Campaign Won’t Beat Conservative Champion George Holding

Wow! Congresswoman Renee Ellmers is running a pathetic campaign. I can’t wait until she loses her seat. In 2010 the Tea Party elected her and she won a seat that was held by a prominent Democrat. Now it seems that Renee has decided to become a prominent Democrat herself. She quickly became establishment. She is only well known for saying and doing idiotic things and turning her back on her district.

 I will not be voting for her, I will be voting for her opponent George Holding. Ellmers endorsed Donald Trump in a desperate attempt to seem anti-establishment. Now she is running a Trump-esque campaign because she can’t run on her disastrous record. Many were shocked for Ellmers has had a soft record on immigration, so it surprises people that she would endorse someone who rose in the polls due to strict policy on immigration. She has even attacked her opponent for sleeping on a plane ride. Can you say desperate? Many commented that this was a classless, desperate and pathetic attack.


 Ellmers has also launched an on-slaught of negative and false attacks on her opponent, Representative George Holding.


Holding has cleared up several of these falsehoods on social media.


Ellmers attacked Holding for not attending a ribbon-cutting. Holding pointed out that the House was voting to condemn ISIS for committing genocide that day; every North Carolina member of Congress voted except Congresswoman Ellmers.

Most of Ellmer’s attacks seemed like were born right of the Liberal playbook. Holding voted against several big-spending, pork filled bills and Renee called it ‘voting against North Carolina.’ That’s right, you would think that only Liberals would attack a Republican representative for being  fiscally conservative.

George Holding received a perfect conservative score (100 percent)  from American Conservative Union, while Renee holds the worst record in Congress for the North Carolina delegation.

Grassroots Conservative group FreedomWorks has endorsed Representative in his race for the 2nd district.

The National Right to Life Committee has endorsed Rep. Holding also. Remember when Renee Ellmers betrayed pro-lifers everywhere when she helped take down a pro life bill. What bad timing, Ellmers did this while 500,000 pro-life citizens were marching. Millenials let her have it, staging a protest outside her office.


She has to go, and I have confidence that she will be defeated. If you’re in the North Carolina’s 2nd district, I urge you to vote George Holding and finally get rid of desperate Renee Ellmers.

Republicans Have Revitalized North Carolina

When Republicans took control of North Carolina we had the fifth highest unemployment rate in the country at nearly 9% and we were struggling to recover from the recession. But by thinking outside the box and implementing policies that unleashed the private sector, North Carolina has added over 270,000 new jobs and is among the top states for job-creation. In fact, North Carolina has created the 6th most jobs in the nation since 2013, unemployment is lower in all 100 counties across the state and North Carolina has been named the most competitive state in the country.

  • Job growth rate is 10th highest in the country.
  • 34% reduction in our unemployment rate, from the 8.7% rate we inherited, to the 5.6% rate we have today.
  • Forbes Magazine’s #2 state for Business and Career Climate.
  • Chief Executive Magazine’s #3 for Business.
  • CNBC’s 5th Best State for Business.
  • Ernst and Young’s 3rd Lowest State and Local Tax Burden on Business.
  • Fastest growing economy. (GDP)
  • Lifted the pay freeze on teachers enacted by the previous administration.
  • Raised starting teacher pay from $30,000/annually to $35,000 annually.
  • Gave one of the largest teacher pay raises in state history, averaging 7% per teacher.
  • North Carolina is 7th in the nation for state level funding of education, spending 11% more on education than the national average.
With this record, I can see why Democrats want to focus on bathrooms laws.
We are proud of Republican majorities in the state House and Senate. We are also proud of the leadership of our Governor Pat Mcrory and our Lt. Governor Dan Forest.
