The conservative beltway lost another congressional seat to an insurgent candidacy this week when 24-year-old Madison Cawthorn defeated widely-endorsed Lynda Bennett in North Carolina’s 11th congressional district.
Bennett positioned herself as a supporter of President Trump’s “America First” agenda despite reports that she once denounced the president. The conservative beltway, including Trump, endorsed Bennett.
Her backers included former Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the House Freedom Fund, the Senate Conservative Fund, House Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Freedom Caucus Wives, David Bossie of Citizens United, and Matt Schlapp’s American Conservative Union. Read the rest HERE.
