The 25-year-old became the Republican nominee for North Carolina’s 11th congressional district after winning the primary earlier this year. If victorious, he would be one of the youngest members of Congress ever elected.
In June, Cawthorn handily defeated Lynda Bennett, who received the backing of President Trump. He attributed his victory to a superior ground game with voters and his message about freedom, which “translated across generations and across ethnic groups.”
