What does Madison Cawthorne stand for?

Absolutely nothing.

I guess they saw how much money TLP made out of the mad libs and they figured "hey, why not us?"

He should be too hard to beat, inexperienced, his sexual misconduct at school is becoming a factor and he seems to be a plastic idiot willing to say whatever is needed that day.

Not sure if he's is a more or less rapey than Gaetz.

He doesn't even stand for the anthem.  Disrespectful.

The PAC has already raised $5,000 in one donation

I'm not anti this whole thing but so far it's a couple of guys who've thrown in five g's and are getting a decent amount of publicity for their money but that's it. Good on them for giving this all a go, but it's going to take a hell of a lot more to take down a sitting Republican and so far all they've got is a press release.

The amount of money in US politics is extraordinary, and while we are often reminded of this, it bears repeating frequently. PAC's are a big part of the problem and rarely the solution because even progressive pro-Dem PACs wind up being a rallying cry for Republicans to fundraise some more. The only way to overcome them is via truly extraordinary community organising like we've seen in Georgia during the Trump years, and even then it was a close-run thing.

Rep. Cawthorn serves as a champion of free expression, and individual liberty

He certainly supports the freedom and liberty to bullshiat his entire life story.

Now? Oh, much less so. Unlike Gaetz, Sitler's would-be victims can just tip him over.

Cawthorn's office, through an email from spokesman Micah Bock, called it "an effort to silence his voice" by "embittered liberal activists."

Call the PAC Matchbox 2022 because they're going up against Hot Wheels

As a long term strategy it might be better to frame this a "Replacing Madison Cawthorne with someone who is actually qualified to be a State Representative and not a lying halfwit" so the right can't frame it as a "Dark liberal Money unites to steal Seat in Congress from Noble Handicapped Ex Soldier."  It's the fifty percent that are not so all fired up about either party that needs to be influenced.  (I am not necessarily talking about centrists or moderates).

Madison is a girl's name.

a federal PAC has been formed for the sole purpose of firing a sitting member of Congress.

Couldn't happen to a nicer kid. Mainly because nicer kids don't go on Nazi site pilgrimages.

I have no problem with all of these PACs popping up to try to beat little Trumpy. My only problem is they need to have effective messaging staff and know where to advertise. Putting an ad on MSNBC when it should go on Fox is important. Dropping ads into local news is even better. Also - Facebook is usually a better ROI than TV ads these days since most right-wingers get their news from there.

But most of the ads I see end up on Youtube and never get put in front of the people these PACs are targeting. I saw this ad the other day for one of Cawthorne's challengers and thought it was pretty good. Question is, where is it being shown outside of YouTube and retweets?

That's assuming he doesn't adjust his victims to fit his physical limitations.

I hope they beat him like a dead tree.

"David Wheeler, a two-time candidate for the NC Senate in District 47 and Col. Moe Davis, who ran against Cawthorn in 2020,"

So, it's Wheeler vs wheeler.

Who the f*ck that isn't a Nazi refers to Hitler as "the Führer?"
Oh, wait.

Cawthorn isn't going anywhere - Trumpers around here love him, and basically everyone outside of the City of Asheville is hardcore for Trump. Don't forget this is the same district that brought us Mark Meadows.

With more and more wealthy people moving into the region, I suspect Madison will be a very comfortable Nazi in Congress for years to come.

/I hope I'm wrong, but he beat the pants off Moe Davis

This guy's chosen party, if left to their own devices to run things, would have him stranded outside every public place he may have ever needed to go. Schools, post offices, banks, on and on - they would have seen him bumping his front wheels up against curbs outside Cracker Barrel and not gave a single fark about him being left out. Even his most focused tree punching wouldn't have helped him. fark this guy and the GOP
