NC-11: Millions pour into western NC congressional race that was once seen as a GOP lock

Millions of dollars have poured into a western North Carolina congressional race, as Republicans try to prevent Democrats from flipping a newly-redrawn district that was once a conservative stronghold.

The race in the 11th District, covering most of western North Carolina including Asheville, is the most expensive for the district in over a decade.

Republican Madison Cawthorn, 25, is running against Democrat Morris “Moe” Davis, a retired Air Force colonel and former chief prosecutor for terrorism trials at Guantanamo Bay. The seat was once held by Mark Meadows, who stepped down to become White House Chief of Staff.

Cawthorn has raised $2.8 million for his campaign, campaign finance reports released Thursday show, while Davis has raised $1.5 million.

The cash has only added more energy to one of the most high-profile races in the state, where Cawthorn, a surprise conservative darling, has had to fight accusations of unwanted sexual advances, supporting white supremacy and lying about his record.
