Here’s what happened…

Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and is currently the youngest member of Congress has lost his Republican primary in North Carolina to state Sen. Chuck Edwards.

According to Newsmax, Cawthorn conceded to Edwards even with Trump’s endorsement making him the first Trump-endorsed candidate to lose his primary bid.

Cawthorn was once celebrated as a top Republican up-and-comer however things quickly took a turn for the worst when he became the center of many controversies.

Cawthorn was also dealing with a number legal troubles like when he was caught driving with a revoked drivers license and also having two speeding tickets. Cawthorn also was slapped with a misdemeanor charge after he brought a gun into a North Carolina airport.

It was also rumored that Cawthorn engaged in a insider trading allegation after claims began being made that he was behind a “Let’s Go Brandon” cryptocurrency coin.
