Madison Cawthorn Says Effort to Keep Him Off November’s Ballot Is ‘Very Close’ to Succeeding

( )- On Monday, Republican North Carolina congressman Madison Cawthorn described ongoing efforts to keep him off the ballot in this year’s midterm elections. He suggested that those efforts are also “very close” to succeeding.

Cawthorn is facing a legal challenge to his candidacy over false claims that he encouraged or took part in an “insurrection.”

A group of voters in North Carolina filed a legal challenge to his candidacy, claiming that by inciting an insurrection – which he didn’t ever do – he is disqualified from holding public office under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The amendment says that nobody can serve as a member of Congress is if they have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the government after having previously taken an oath to support the Constitution of the United States.

The voters who filed the sit are part of the Free Speech for People organization – a group that doesn’t actually support freedom of speech. They claim that by raising issues about election integrity and supporting peaceful protesters who were not involved with the Washington, D.C. riot on January 6, that he had engaged in an insurrection.

Cawthorn revealed the details in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who asked him how close they are to succeeding.

“They are actually very close,” he said.

He noted that North Carolina’s state board of election is a panel of five people, and they assert that they “have the ability to bar 740,000 plus Americans in my district from being able to elect me to send me to Washington to be their weapon to fight against the deep state.”

If they succeed with this case, just think how many other Republicans these far-left extremists could go after next.
