Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., said Wednesday that it’s time for “Dark MAGA to truly take command.”
WHAT HE SAID
A day after graciously conceding defeat in his GOP primary race on Twitter, Cawthorn vowed on Instagram to “expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal.”
“We have an enemy to defeat, but we will never be able to defeat them until we defeat the cowardly and weak members of our own party,” Cawthorn continued.
- “Their days are numbered. We are coming.”
Cawthorn, 26, once seen as a GOP rising star, narrowly lost reelection to state Sen. Chuck Edwards after a series of scandals, including several run-ins with the law, accusations of insider training and sexual harassment allegations by multiple women.
- In March, Cawthorn embarrassed his fellow Republicans with stories about being invited to orgies and witnessing cocaine use.
Former President Donald Trump stood by Cawthorn till the end.
- “Recently, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make again,” Trump wrote Monday on Truth Social. “Let’s give Madison a second chance!”
