After Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) was officially ousted from her conference chair position for refusing to entertain former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election, Representative Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) was criticized for a tweet that took delight in her fall from the GOP‘s good graces.
The Rev. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, a resident of Asheville, North Carolina, has announced her intention to run against GOP Representative Madison Cawthorn, citing his rhetoric that has emboldened white supremacists and subscribers to the QAnon conspiracy theory while continuing to breathe life into former President Donald Trump’s lie that the 2020 general election was fraudulent.
North Carolina House candidate Madison Cawthorn created an attack website accusing journalist Tom Fiedler, who previously worked for The Miami Herald, of leaving his job as a dean of the Boston University College of Communications “to work for non-white males, like Cory Booker, who aims to ruin white males running for office.”
