Whether or not Woodhouse gets in, the odds are still tilted in Cawthorn's favor, since the anti-Cawthorn vote is going to be split up among at least five others. Unless Cawthorn can't get to 30% of the primary vote and he has to face just one of those Republican challengers in a run-off.
Incidentally, the challenge to Cawthorn's eligibility went away when the new map was adopted, because his challengers no longer live in the affected district. Remains to be seen whether voters in the new 11th CD will refile the challenge based on the insurrection clause in the 14th Amendment.
Meanwhile, Madam Virginia Foxx has two Republican primary challengers -- Michael Ackerman, who's been a leader in the anti-masking show of force in front of the Watauga School Board; and Adina Safta (photo below), who actually lives in Raleigh. What's her deal? So far as I can tell, she has no campaign presence on Twitter or Facebook, no campaign website that I can find, and she wasted her opportunity on Ballotpedia, responding to their candidate survey questionnaire while managing to say precisely nothing of substance. She does use the word "freedom" a lot.
