Congressman-elect George Holding held a Christmas Party on Friday where guests brought some rather expensive gifts.
The “Christmas Victory Celebration,'' held at the Carolina Country Club asked for donations of $100, $250, $500, $500, $1,000 or $2,500.
The proceeds from the fund raiser were to be used to retire the debt from Holding's campaign.
Holding, a former U.S. Attorney and a Republican, raised and spent $1.6 million in winning the 13th congressional district seat in November. He had a campaign debt of $364,754, according to Opensecrets, the website that monitors campaign spending. Holding put $326,265 of his own money into the race, according to the website.
