Holding is in his 3rd term representing the 2nd district of North Carolina. Holding sits on Ways and Means, and is a member of the Republican Study Committee. Holding has an 85.5% legislative score, reflecting a generally reliable fiscal conservatism. We’d like to see someone in an R+17 district in the 90%+ range, though. His votes for Amtrak earmarks and against a further round of base closures count against him, but with continued pressure, the 2nd will remain relatively well served by George Holding.
