Madison Cawthorn Wins Election, Becomes Youngest House Member in Decades

Source: Yahoo News

Madison Cawthorn has won the election for North Carolina’s 11th congressional district, becoming the youngest member of the House in decades.

At 25 years old, Cawthorn is at the minimum legal age to serve in the House. Cawthorn will replace former North Carolina congressman Mark Meadows, who resigned in order to serve as President Trump’s chief of staff. Cawthorn won the district primary against a challenger picked by Meadows and backed by Trump.

“Cry more, lib,” Cawthorn wrote on Twitter after the Associated Press called a victory for the freshman candidate.

When he was 18, Cawthorn was nominated by Meadows for a spot at the U.S. Naval Academy; however, a car crash left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Source: NBC News

Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, a close ally of President Donald Trump, has held on to her Senate seat, NBC News projects.

The contest was an expensive one, an indicator of its importance to Republicans and Democrats alike. The Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield raised slightly more than $47 million and spent over $43 million. Ernst, meanwhile, raised $23.5 million and spent more $21 million.

With 90 percent of the vote counted, Ernest was leading 51.6 percent to 45.4 percent.

The bellwether race was considered an important indicator of Trump’s own electoral prospects as well as the balance of power in the Senate.

The first QAnon-supporting congressional candidate has been elected to Congress

Source: Business Insider

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican who has supported the QAnon conspiracy theory, has been elected to Congress, Decision Desk HQ projected on Tuesday evening.

Greene, who previously worked as a construction executive, clinched the GOP nomination after winning an August primary runoff against John Cowan in Georgia's 14th congressional district. While Greene had been running against Democratic opponent Kevin Van Ausdal, he had to drop out of the race in September when a sudden divorce forced him to move in with family in Indiana, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Greene's GOP nomination in the congressional race demonstrated how QAnon, a baseless far-right conspiracy theory that alleges President Donald Trump is fighting a "deep state" cabal of satanic pedophiles, had indeed taken on a new posture. The once-fringe movement originated on far-right message boards in 2017, but has skyrocketed in popularity since the COVID-19 pandemic began, drawing many Republicans into the conspiracy theory community.

Greene has posted numerous QAnon-related messages on social media since 2018, according to Media Matters for America (MMFA), a progressive media watchdog.

Helen Chenoweth-Hage can rest easy now. She's no longer the craziest House member ever.

What's the NY Times live election needle looking like?

I tried to view it but it requires a subscription and I'm poor.

Looks like a blowout isn't happening tonight

Crap I wanted an Electoral Vote landslide, but I'll take winning with 310 votes.

Indiana and Kentucky are coming in already

Tune into CNN.

I just voted - great news

I live in the most conservative district in NYC (Max Rose’s), and the school where I vote is bright Red (80% Republican, Trump signs everywhere).

Well, I voted around 4:00, and there were only three people ahead of me (it’s split into about 10 sections, depending on what street you live in). Each one only had two or three people waiting. I waited about 3 minutes, then it was my turn. Gave my name, and she found me right away. Then I was handed the sheet and a pen, and the rest is history.

I expected to wait around the block to vote. Is this a good sign? Republicans like to vote on Election Day right? Are they staying home, or am I missing something?
