The 11th Congressional District encompasses most of Western North Carolina and includes Asheville. Starting in the 110th Congress, it is represented by Heath Shuler, a Democrat. Shuler defeated 8-term Republican representative Charles H. Taylor in the 2006 midterm elections. The 11th District is traditionally one of the most competitive congressional districts in North Carolina, and elections in the district are usually close and hard-fought.
