The nonpartisan Cook Political Report rated the race as “lean Republican.”

The 2nd Congressional District encompasses the suburbs of Raleigh, N.C., and other parts of central North Carolina. It was redrawn prior to the 2016 elections.

Holding has represented the district since 2017, after he defeated then-Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) in a GOP primary.
