While once-presidential hopeful John Edwards stands trial in Greensborough N.C. for campaign finance violations, the U.S. Attorney who secured his indictment celebrated a different kind of victory 75 miles down the road in Raleigh Tuesday.

George Holding won the Republican nomination for Congress in North Carolina this week, purportedly riding the coattails of former Sen. John Edwards’ infamy, reports Politico.

While losing opponents former Wake County commissioner Paul Coble got 34% of the vote and Navy veteran Bill Randall trailed behind at 22%, Coble echoed questions raised by Edwards’ attorneys about Holding’s path to glory.

Did the Bush appointee and former aide to the late GOP Sen. Jesse Helms pursue the high-profile Edwards case solely for political and personal gain? Holding says no.

He told Politico, “When I was the United States Attorney, I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and everything I did was an effort to comply with that oath.”

Holding is favored to win the congressional race against Democratic opponent Charles Malone, a former journalist and Army veteran, due to the make-up of the newly drawn 13th district.
