On Tuesday, North Carolina Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn appeared with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort, where the freshman House member picked up an important endorsement for his 2022 re-election campaign.
The announcement was made on Rep. Cawthorn’s Instagram account, where the wheelchair-bound Rep. stood up to appear with Trump.
Proud to stand with the President!
We had a great discussion about our strategy for the 2022 election, election security, and plans to empower REAL PATRIOTS.
He added, “And then I wake up to these vandals, these little punks on my driveway, you know, they were gluing some of my signs to the driveway, they were spray painting pretty not so subtle threats on to them and then they were cutting the head and neck out of out my signs all over the district.”
Cawthorn is paralyzed from a car accident in 2014.
Endorsements for Republicans in the 2022 midterms from Trump could carry significant value for the candidates the former president chooses.
Trump has so far endorsed South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, and Idaho Senator Mike Crapo.
He also endorsed his former Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, for Arkansas Governor. Sanders is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
