  • GREENSBORO, N.C. (8/20/12)--Two Republican candidates for Congress from North Carolina met last week with credit unions in the state. According to the North Carolina Credit Union League, George Holding, candidate for the 13th District, and Robert Pittenger, 9th District candidate, are likely to win the General Election in November (The Weekly Conversation Aug. 17). Holding is in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Brad Miller, who is not seeking re-election. "We were able to bring together credit union representatives from across the district," said Dan Schline, senior vice president of association services at the league. Holding learned that nearly 300,000 members live in his district and heard from representatives of Coastal FCU, which hosted the meeting, and from Freedom FCU and NC Community FCU.  Pittenger, a former state senator, is running for a seat vacated by retiring U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick. Pittenger spent time Friday learning more about credit unions and their work in Charlotte. Meeting with him were representatives from Charlotte Metro CU, Carolina Postal CU and Truliant CU.
