House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was in the Tar Heel State this week, campaigning for prospective Republican House members in the backyard of the Democrats' presidential convention.

Cantor hit the trail for candidates George Holding, Mark Meadows, Robert Pittenger and David Rouzer on Wednesday, Cantor's campaign confirmed to the Alley.

Holding is running for the seat that will be left open after Democratic Rep. Brad Miller's retirement. "Say it with us: Rep. George Holding," National Journal's Scott Bland wrote in the most recent House Race Rankings.

Meadows is running against Hayden Rogers for the seat Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler is leaving. "Democratic nominee Hayden Rogers is winning plaudits as a candidate, but his math in this district -- the most Republican-leaning in the state -- is just so difficult for a candidate without the benefits of incumbency," Bland wrote.

Pittenger is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Republican Rep. Sue Myrick.

Rouzer is up against Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre, "setting up a fall barn burner," according to the Bland's rankings.

Cantor was back in Richmond, Va., on Thursday and has no public schedule until the convention.
