Women Vote Releases NC-02 TV Ad Showing Holding’s Dishonesty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List independent expenditure arm Women Vote released new TV ads highlighting the consistent dishonesty displayed by George Holding throughout his time representing North Carolina’s Second District.

The ad can be viewed here and will appear on Raleigh cable and broadcast through Election Day.

“George Holding is lying about his record on special interests and North Carolinians should know the truth before they vote,” said Christina Reynolds, vice president of communications at EMILYs List. “North Carolina families deserve better than a man who consistently chooses money over the well-being of his constituents. Linda Coleman will fight for North Carolinians every time.”

SCRIPT: “Dishonest George Holding”

VO: In North Carolina, we call out dishonesty and George Holding has a real problem with the truth. 

HOLDING: “I’m not gonna take any money from special interest PACs.”

VO: But what does George Holding do?

VO: He goes to Washington and takes hundreds of thousands from the insurance industry and Big Pharma and votes to raise our insurance premiums, increase costs for people with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and cancer, and charge older Americans 5 times more. 

VO: George Holding, North Carolina can’t afford any more of your lies.
