Looks like the shit-show is over.


First-term U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn lost his Republican primary race Tuesday to state Sen. Chuck Edwards, after the pro-Donald Trump firebrand’s personal and political blunders translated into voter unhappiness.
Cawthorn called Edwards to concede the 11th Congressional District primary to Edwards, Cawthorn campaign spokesperson Luke Ball told The Associated Press. The AP later called the race for Edwards over Cawthorn and six other Republican candidates.
“Against all odds, we fought hard to win this election and provide clear conservative leadership for the mountains,” Edwards said in a news release. “Now, we will harness this energy, come together as a party, and keep this seat in Republican hands in November.”
Cawthorn had vaulted to national prominence after winning the mountain-area seat in 2020 at age 25.
Edwards is fast-food franchise owner who advances to the November election against Democrat Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, who won Tuesday’s six-candidate Democratic primary.
U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis, who endorsed Edwards, said Cawthorn was an embarrassment to his constituents.
“Republicans chose Chuck Edwards tonight because he is the embodiment of mountain values who will fight for them every single day in Congress with honor and integrity,” Tillis said in a news release.
Cawthorn faced negative publicity for speeding and gun violations, as well as for calling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy a “thug.” He also infuriated fellow Republicans in Congress when he alleged on a podcast that he had been invited to an orgy in Washington.

And his initial decision to run for reelection elsewhere — only to switch back to the 11th District — didn’t sit well with many locals.

Cawthorn proved he isn't smart enough to be a US representative. It's always stupid to cast negative aspersions on your peers but some people just can't control their big mouths. Nothing lost there. Maybe he really isn't too much different from this defective younger generation.

Liz Cheney gains a compatriot.
The boy did this to himself. The mountain folk might let pass what happens behind closed doors, but letting himself get photographed doing questionable stuff was too much.

The old boy network of the GOP is stomping down the tards in their ranks the same way they quashed the Tea Partiers.
