Madison Cawthorn’s candidacy for the N.C. 11th Congressional District is basically a fluke. Mark Meadows should have stayed out of the fray like he said he would. Instead, he endorsed the best friend of his and [Rep.] Jim Jordan’s wives, Lynda Bennett. Angry at Meadows, 11th District Republicans backed Cawthorn instead of Bennett.
So now the Republicans are stuck with Cawthorn, a 25-year-old, giggly, hormonal, poorly educated, inexperienced young man. Cawthorn, with no adult responsibilities, seems to be stuck in the “coming of age” part of his life.
