Madison goes down

Chuck Edwards just told his watch party crowd that @RepCawthorn
called to concede in #NC11 GOP primary, per @WestfallAustin
who's in the room


Luke Ball, Cawthorn’s spokesman, told reporters that their focus would now be making sure that Republicans in the 11th Congressional District are united behind one candidate.

The only way he could have lost is if it was rigged. When will they be doing the recount(s) and audits.

I wanted him to win just to spite the hypocrite Republicans who have been trying to bury him. As if they're superior to him.

Cawthorn lost to state Senator Chuck Edwards by less than 2,000 votes

that's the scary part (until you look at Chuckles Edwards politics...that scary too.)

They are superior to him. That's what an incredible little turd he is.

It was that video with his ‘cousin’. That was too much for the fundies to stomach.

Do Q-Bert & Margie Traitor Greene have competition in their primaries?

He was done for long before the salacious details went national. Guy is 100% phony, total embarrassment. Local folk have been done with him for awhile and I would bet many never saw the worst stuff or more likely care less about his personal business than about how he represented them in DC, which is to say very badly.

Only the hard core Trumpies stayed on board.

The Dem opponent for this race is a lesbian pastor and Mom who has been a civic leader for some time. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara. I may be spelling that wrong. Not everybody up in the holler is bigoted, actually most are not.

The worst part is that clown is in there until the end of the first week of January of 2023 and gets to collect all the benefits of having been a one time member of the US Congress:
1) Health insurance for life
2) Pension
3) Secret Service protection if there's a viable threat against him
4) Endless consulting $$ for lobbying firms
I'm just waiting for the day when it comes out that he is actually a russian deeply embedded spy. His name just doesn't seem like it could be real. Names like that are among the only things that make me suspect the "we are all living in the matrix" hypothesis has any validity whatsoever.

He will not be eligible for pension after serving only one term.

To make money lobbying you need credibility and influence, he has none.

And the name Madison is pretty common in his generation but I think it is more common for girls.

Madison became popular after the movie "Splash" came out (the mermaid called herself Madison after the avenue). It IS usually a girl's name, but maybe his mom really, really loved "Splash" and didn't care. Or maybe it is a family surname somewhere in his family tree, that seems to be getting more and more popular as a baby name choice.

EDIT: by complete accident, pursuing a topic someone was discussing on FB, I found this:
Quote

A leading proponent was Madison Grant, a lawyer, eugenicist, and conservationist who published The Passing of the Great Race in 1916, arguing that the supposedly superior “Nordic” race was in danger of extinction in the United States. Grant advocated for sterilization programs for supposedly inferior races, immigration restrictions, and anti-miscegenation laws that would stop any intermingling between racial groups.

I have no idea what sort of people Cawthorn's parents are, so I have no way of knowing if this is significant or not. But it was interesting.

I guess he'll never get invited to a cocaine-fueled orgy now.

Do Q-Bert & Margie Traitor Greene have competition in their primaries?

Greene has something like 6 people running against her. Both my Repub and Dem (who are crossing over in the primary) friends seem to have largely settled on Jennifer Strahan as the alternative. My bet is that the large group of alternatives will split the anti-Greene vote and she'll have the most votes. Hopefully she won't reach the 50% +1 threshold we require in GA and she'll go to a runoff and lose there. Hopefully...

In her district she will win no matter what. Well, perhaps if she shot TFG she might lose but it would be close.

There's no health insurance benefit for one-term former members of Congress apart from ACA plans which are available to everyone.

Here's how health insurance works (heavily subsidized "gold-level" plans) for current members:

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

The real lesson is don't take on the GQP establishment - they always have tapes and recordings; tapes and recordings that aren't a problem until you become a problem.
