Quote:
Madison Cawthorn — a young Republican whose campaign was dogged by accusations of racism — won his congressional race in North Carolina on Tuesday, making the 25-year-old real estate investor the youngest member of the U.S. House of Representatives when he joins the body in January.

Cawthorn defeated Democratic nominee Moe Davis by a fairly wide margin in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, the Associated Press reported.

Cawthorn has maintained a provocative presence on Twitter, using the platform to tweet out crude insults about Davis last week. This tendency continued on Tuesday night, when Cawthorn celebrated his victory by defiantly tweeting, “Cry more, lib.”

Multiple women have accused Cawthorn of sexual assault or unwanted sexual advances dating back to at least 2014. Plus, a 2017 Instagram photo surfaced of Cawthorn posing at the Eagle’s Nest, Adolf Hitler’s mountain retreat, and claiming the site is on his “bucket list.”

Aside from his age he sounds like a typical Republican politician at this point.

Cawthorn, the QAnon lady in Georgia, and there’s a seat in Colorado that hasn’t been called but has a conspiracy theorist in the lead...

What is the hard right smoking?
