...a complete political upset...
POTUS does not have a great record in his personnel picks. We need these young people, going forward.
I will keep an eye on Madison Cawthorn.
He was interviewed on F&F this morning. He did mention he was injured in a car accident several years ago, but as an aside to another question - I didn’t know he was in a wheelchair until this article. He did say he has talked with President and he has been invited to the White House.
I saw the interview this AM. Very impressive young guy. It was really interesting (weird?) that all these ‘powerhouse’ conservatives endorsed his opponent and she got slaughtered. Madison was endorsed by Trump,Cruz, Meadows, Jim Jordan and a number of others.
I donno... I think it’s less of an upset for the president and more an entire rejection of Lynda Bennett’s running of effectively a national campaign instead of campaigning for local votes. The extremely impressive endorsement list by Madison Cawthorn is a who’s who of local politics, vs Lynda’s strange endorsement by Ted Cruz?
In this 2015 article Madison said “I absolutely will run for Congress.”
This kid lives near me. Bennett could have been beaten by a wet frog had it campaigned like Cawthorne did. She was out politicked by a kid who had more energy and determination. His signs and banners were everywhere and he busted her chops with instant radio rebuttals to her attack ads.
The last ad that ran in the final days last week had audio of her dumping on Trump “No Trump! Never, never, never”, which I assume was a quote from 2016.
Trump didn’t lose anything by this kid winning.
We LOVE this young man here. He and President Trump will have a great relationship. Madison is a motivational speaker and would be just the right person to speak at Trump’s rallies. And he’s such a pleasure to look at for us gals.
Romantically linked to Ben Dover.
Formerly dated I.P. Daily.
The wheel chair did it.
His fiancee is the one standing behind him in the first picture . . . she’s a Cross-fit competitor. And a local down here in Florida.
He sounds like a rising star.
Another Justin Amash?
