A panel of federal judges formally backed off Tuesday the idea of requiring a new congressional map for North Carolina's fall elections, one week after broaching the possibility when the judges declared the current lines illegal partisan gerrymanders.

North Carolina's 11th Congressional District encompasses most of western North Carolina.  Republican Mark Meadows has represented it since 2013.  He is seeking a third term and faces Democratic challenger Rick Bryson, a Bryson City alderman who narrowly captured the party's primary this year.  They debated at Western Carolina University last month.  It was moderated by WLOS News 13's Frank Fraboni.
