NC-11: Welcome to NC's 'ugliest' congressional race

Davis, 62, faces 25-year-old Republican Madison Cawthorn for the 11th District seat vacated by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. The district includes all or part of 17 western North Carolina counties.

Last month it was Cawthorn’s social media posts that drew fire.

In 2017 he posted pictures on Instagram of a trip to Adolf Hitler’s German mountain retreat. He said the trip to the Eagle’s Nest “has been on my bucket list for years. And it did not disappoint.” Critics saw it as part of what appeared to them to be a pattern of support for white nationalists.

“It’s the ugliest race in North Carolina,” said Chris Cooper, a political scientist at Western Carolina University. “Davis hit Cawthorn hard on his social media posts and it seems that turnabout is fair play.”

It was an Aug. 13 Instagram post from a woman named Katrina Krulikas that suggested Cawthorn had made unwanted sexual advances six years ago, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times. A few days later the World, an Asheville-based Christian publication, reported that Cawthorn had once “exhibited sexually or verbally aggressive behavior” to other women.

Cawthorn, who spoke at the Republican National Convention in Washington, addressed the charge this month in a debate.
