Democratic nominee for the 13th Congressional District Charles Malone makes it official: He's back in the race. Malone signed up to run in the primary but dropped out because of health concerns. When those concerns resolved, and he was the top vote-getter in the Democratic primary, Malone re-evaluated.
He will face Republican nomineee George Holding, the former U.S. attorney for this part of North Carolina, who received heavy financial backing from a super PAC comprised of his banking family relatives and some friends.
Holding defeated Paul Coble and Bill Randall in the primary. "Following ia time for reflection, prayer and physical healing, I am fit and prepared to make sure that the 45,000 people who voted for me on May 8 did not vote in vain," Malone said in a statement he released.
