Former U.S. Attorney George Holding defeated opponents Paul Coble and Bill Randall for the GOP nomination for the 13th district seat in Congress. The question is, who will the Democrats field against Holding?
This year, the redrawn 13th Congressional District is heavily Republican, encompassing nine counties that include parts of Wake and Durham. The only Democratic candidate, Bernard Holliday, is not considered a threat. Another candidate on the Democratic ballot, Charles Malone, dropped out of the race due to health reasons, although he won his party’s nomination Tuesday. Malone told The Associated Press recently that if he was the top vote-getter in the primary, he would leave it to the Democratic Party to appoint a replacement.
Miller, who was drawn into the new district, chose not to run again.
