The new district – drawn by the legislature last month in response to a federal court order – spans from Greensboro to Statesville and Lexington, and it won’t have an incumbent candidate: 13th District U.S. Rep. George Holding of Raleigh says he’ll instead run in the new 2nd District. He has no ties to the new version of his current district.
