POLK NC Dems
small county - Big Tent
We Are Officially in NC11 for 2020
by Andy Millard
The dust has settled - at least for now - and Polk County is officially in the 11th Congressional District for the 2020 election cycle. That may well change for 2022, however, because the state legislature will have to reassess and possibly redraw all congressional districts in 2021.
When we were in District 10, we got used to having just one Democratic candidate in most of the recent elections (Patsy Keever in 2012, Tate MacQueen in 2014, Yours Truly in 2016, David Wilson Brown in 2018). But now that we're in 11, we have FIVE candidates.
As for the two candidates who had been running in the old 10th District: David Brown is now running in the 5th District (where the incumbent is Republican Virginia Foxx). Gina Collias is running here in the 11th.
Our new District 11 is about 59% Republican to 41% Democrat. But with Mark Meadows recently announcing that he won't seek reelection, we should have a fighting chance to take back the seat.
