As 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. When Holding left office the average sentence in drug trafficking cases in eastern North Carolina was well above the national average.
On January 3, 2013, Holding was sworn in as the Representative for North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District. He serves on the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Judiciary Committee.
George and his wife Lucy have four children – three daughters aged 13, 12, and 11 and one son aged 3.
