Madison Cawthorn Campaign
In the June 2020 Republican primary for North Carolina’s 11th congressional district, Cawthorn defeated Lynda Bennett, who had been endorsed both by President Donald Trump and Cawthorn’s former mentor, Meadows, who had since become White House Chief of Staff. Cawthorn gained the support of many local leaders and was endorsed by Mark Walker, the vice chairman of the House Republican Conference. His victory has been called an upset.
Cawthorn will be the youngest Republican and one of the youngest members ever elected to the House of Representatives. He has said that he would “like to be the face of the Republican Party when it comes to health care.” In 2017, Cawthorn posted an Instagram picture of his visit to Adolf Hitler’s vacation residence Eagle’s Nest, which he said had been on his “bucket list for awhile”.
In the post, he called Hitler Führer, a German term of reverence meaning “leader”, and the site “supreme evil”. His post generated criticism and allegations of far-right sympathies. In response, Cawthorn denied that he has affinities for white supremacist, calling that ridiculous, and said he “completely and wholeheartedly denounce any kind of white nationalism, any kind of Nazism”.

Some Jewish residents of his congressional district expressed concern about the incident, including Esther Manheimer, mayor of Asheville, the district’s largest city. Cawthorne deleted the Instagram entry on August 10.

The sentence on the website was later modified to claim Fiedler is “an unapologetic defender of left-wing identity politics”. Cawthorn released a statement saying he had intended “to condemn” such political opinion as being “dangerous and divisive. I have condemned racism and identity politics throughout my campaign.”
Ben Mathis-Lilley, writing for Slate, observed that Cawthorn’s apology “convolutedly expressed regret for ‘having unfairly implied I was criticizing Cory Booker,’ which is notable in that it is not an apology for attacking the journalist in question, Tom Fiedler, as a traitor to his race.” In the November general election, Cawthorn defeated Moe Davis to become representative-elect. He will assume office on January 3, 2021. Upon hearing he had won he tweeted ‘cry more,
