North Carolina's 11th congressional district encompasses most of Western North Carolina. Starting in the 113th Congress, it is represented by Mark Meadows, a Republican. He replaced Democrat Heath Shuler, who retired in 2013. Shuler defeated 8-term Republican representative Charles H. Taylor in the 2006 midterm elections. The 11th District was traditionally one of the most competitive congressional districts in North Carolina. This was largely because of the district's volatile politics. It was historically anchored by heavily Democratic Asheville. However, many of the city's suburbs are among the most conservative areas of North Carolina. The rest of the district was split between Democratic-leaning counties in the south and Republican-leaning counties in the north. Consequently, congressional races in this district have historically been very close and hard-fought. However, in 2011 the district was re-drawn so that most of Asheville is now in the 10th district. It was replaced with some heavily Republican territory in the Foothills that had previously been in the 10th, making the 11th one of the most Republican districts in the South on paper. Shuler announced in February 2012 announced he would not seek a fourth term. In the 2012 election, the seat was won by Mark Meadows, a Republican. (More from Freebase)
