George Holding grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. He attended Wake Forest University and has degrees in Classics and Law. Holding clerked for U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle, practiced law with Kilpatrick Townsend and served as the United States Attorney for North Carolina.

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.

Having previously served as the Representative for North Carolina's 13th Congressional District, Holding was sworn in to serve as the Representative for North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District on January 3, 2017. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.

George and his wife Lucy have four children - three daughters and one son.
