Rep. Cawthorn Fires Back At Dem Who Launched Super PAC To ‘Fire’ Him: ‘I Know I’m Doing My Job’
A new super PAC in North Carolina has been created with the goal of “fire” Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., in the 2022 midterm elections, but the freshman congressman believes the PAC’s creation proves he’s doing his job.
On Monday, Cawthorn’s Democratic opponent in 2020, Col. Moe Davis, and Democratic state Senate candidate David Wheeler created the “Fire Madison Cawthorn” PAC.
According to a news release, the super PAC’s “sole purpose” is to “fire a Member of Congress,” and it boasts to be the first super PAC in western North Carolina to do so.
“The non-profit and IRS registered Super PAC’s sole purpose is to raise funds to focus on the callous and child-like act of U.S. Representative David (Madison) Cawthorn,” the announcement notes.
Cawthorn told Fox News that if he is “hated in Washington, D.C.” and “despised and derided by corporate lobbyists and Super PACs of the radical left.” he knows he is doing his job.
“If I am loved by those who back the blue, if I have earned the support of those who plow the fields and raise a family in North Carolina, I know I am doing my job. Washington, D.C. hates me, because they fear you.” he added.
“These left-wing socialists can call me what they want,” the Republican congressman continued, “but they did not call me to this position. The people of Western North Carolina have my six and that’s the only backup I will ever need.
Many people in Cawthorn’s region have given him “the benefit of the doubt, hoping that maybe he would be a member of Congress for us all,” according to Wheeler, one of the Democrats behind the PAC. “It’s clear that he has one agenda, and it’s himself,” Wheeler said.
“So, Col. Davis and I, and others, decided to do what Americans do, which is to try to influence the government, and we feel we can certainly do better here in Western North Carolina than Madison Cawthorn.”he added.
According to Wheeler, what prompted the super PAC was Cawthorn’s “endorsement of the January 6th insurrection” in the U.S. Capitol, as well as his “absolute loyalty and love for Donald Trump and his inability to understand he represents all of us, not just those that voted for him.”
“And then you top it off with the fact that three months into his tenure, he gets two weeks off and goes on vacation in Dubai, a place that he rails against, ironically, because it’s a Muslim country and he sits around drinking beer for two weeks while the rest of us are stuck in a pandemic looking for help and he callously heads off to Dubai, “Wheeler added
Cawthorn was reported to be honeymooning in Dubai with his new bride following their wedding. The congressman said that skipping votes on his honeymoon was part of his “service as a husband.”
Cawthorn said the Republican Party had a “lesson to learn” from the implications of the GOP’s election fraud allegations after the Jan. 6 Capitol assault, and called the rioting “sickening and infuriating.”
Cawthorn’s communications director, Micah Bock, informed Fox News that “As one of the very first Republican freshmen Congressmen to pass legislation in the 117th Congress, Rep. Cawthorn has championed the interests of veterans across the district,” “From rural broadband reform, to rebuilding local businesses in the post-Covid economy, Rep. Cawthorn has introduced a number of powerful legislative initiatives that put Americans first.”
Cawthorn, according to Bock, “serves as a champion of free expression and liberty,” and it’s “no surprise that embittered liberal activists have been weaponized by the Democrat machine in Washington in an effort to silence his voice.”
