24-Year Old Insurgent Wins North Carolina GOP Primary Against Never Trumper

Madison Cawthorn could become the youngest member of Congress.

A 24-year old insurgent candidate for the Republican nomination to replace Mark Meadows in office scored an upset victory over an establishment-backed party favorite who had secured an endorsement from the President.

Madison Cawthorn is a small businessman and inspirational speaker. The young man was paralyzed six years ago in a car accident, and has cited his experience with his disability as a guiding light inspiring him to work on behalf of forgotten Americans in Congress.

The strongly conservative house district, which was vacated by longtime Representative Mark Meadows when he resigned to serve as President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff, will almost certainly elect Cawthorn, making the millennial the youngest member of congress, taking the title from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Cawthorn will reach the legal requirement of 25 years of age to serve in Congress in August.

Previous remarks on the part of Bennett where the candidate proudly identified as a “Never Trumper” proved to be a source of controversy in the primary election, raising questions as to why President Trump endorsed a candidate who had spoken forcefully in opposition to his election as President.

Cawthorn is an eighth-generation native of western North Carolina.

Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?

A shock entry to the Presidential race.

Published

Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.

Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.

However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.

West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.

Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
