George Holding is happy to win the Republican primary for North Carolina's 13th District Congressional seat, but is uncomfortable with talk that he has the November general election contest in the bag.
When people jokingly call him Congressman Holding, he responds:
Dont jinx anything, he says.
The former U.S. Attorney is expected to win in the redrawn district that leans heavily Republican. And its still unclear who his Democratic opposition will be.
Charles Malone, who won the Democratic nomination, had said he was dropping out of the race due to health problems. But now hes feeling better and is reconsidering a run.
Holding says he wont take anything for granted. He expects President Obama to spend as much as $100 million on the campaign, which draw out Democratic support and, Holding said, make any Democratic candidate competitive.
Its not over till its over, he said.
