Republican Party’s Madison Cawthorn is set to become the youngest US Congressman since 1797 after projections showed him winning in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District. Madison Cawthorn comprehensively defeated his Democratic rival in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, securing about 54% of the vote.
Cawthorn, who’s partially paralysed following a car accident, is a real estate investor and a motivational speaker.
Cawthorn was involved in a nearly fatal car accident returning from a spring break trip in Florida with his friends. Cawthorn’s friend fell asleep while driving their SUV and it crashed into a concrete barrier and burst into flames. The injuries left Cawthorn partially paralyzed, and he now uses a wheelchair.
He worked as a staff assistant for Mark Meadows, who’s chief of staff to US President Donald Trump.
According to BBC, He also studied political science at Patrick Henry College, an evangelical Christian school in Virginia, but dropped out after one semester as he said his injuries had affected his ability to learn.
Mr Cawthorn is the sole owner and employee of an investment company called SPQR LLC, which has reported no income, according to a financial disclosure form he signed before running for Congress.
