While he has received support from some well-known Republicans, others have attacked him or endorsed his opponents in the 11th Congressional District primary on May 17.
Here is a selection of the GOP’s remarks.
The U.S. senator endorsed Chuck Edwards in the primary in March and stated, “Unfortunately, Madison Cawthorn has fallen well short of the most basic standards Western North Carolina expects from their representatives,
and voters now have several well-qualified candidates to choose from who would be a significant improvement.” After hearing about Cawthorn’s stock trades, Tillis tweeted: “Congressman Cawthorn owes North Carolinians an explanation. Insider trading by a member of Congress is a serious betrayal of their oath.”

According to Erwin, a former Henderson County sheriff who once supported Cawthorn, “there are people who will support him no matter what he does, but I’m starting to see more and more continually that people are abandoning him.
” People are seeing this, and it just makes us feel disgusted. According to WFAE, Erwin supported Rod Honeycutt in the primary.
We have nothing in common. We have entirely different pasts and backgrounds, the 13th Congressional District candidate said this week to Axios. “Our only shared characteristics are our age and social conservatism. We still uphold traditional conservative principles like pro-life, free speech, parental rights protection, and other similar ideas.
Hines previously stated to WRAL: “We have various personalities. We might have some different goals, in my opinion. Even though I have the utmost respect for him, what he has accomplished, and his support in this race, I believe that as time goes on, people will start to see me more clearly for who I am. We each have different ideas of who we are.
For an article published in March, the Clay County commissioner said to McClatchy, “I think he’s standing up for our country and our state.” He is unapologetic and doesn’t sugarcoat anything when expressing his opinions.
“We worked incredibly hard to elect conservatives to Congress, and we succeeded. The chairman of the Cherokee County Commission told McClatchy for the March story that “then they turned around and shafted us.
” We recall that, and some of those people are still alive when they ought to be dead. I respect someone like Madison Cawthorn, though, who doesn’t hesitate to speak up and say what needs to be said.
The House speaker described Cawthorn as “reckless” in an interview with McClatchy for the March article. And I believe that his most recent remarks about Ukraine demonstrate a lack of knowledge of international relations and perhaps a lack of maturity.
With all due respect, I must say that I don’t believe Mr. Cawthorn is really interested in advancing any significant policy to benefit this state or this country.
In response to a March story by McClatchy, the former state senator said, “People just think that he considers himself above the law.”
“Why would you leave your wife for a career in politics? People are simply angry about his priorities.
The conservative attorney and political advisor who spoke to McClatchy for the March story said, “He’s a pariah.” “A statesman is needed. We don’t require a performer. Showman Madison Cawthorn is.
The U.S. senator told CNN in March that his constituents should decide how to proceed because “clearly he’s been an embarrassment at times.”
The former N.C. GOP executive director tweeted that it is “simply not a conservative value for an elected official to constantly behave as if they are above the laws of the state and the nation.”

“I believe that the Club for Growth as well as current and former members of the Freedom Caucus, who I believe to be a disgrace to the Republican Party, are taking over the North Carolina Republican Party.
Since I was a young man, I have not been a member of the Republican Party, the former governor and current U.S. Senate candidate said to reporters on Tuesday. And I’m referring to Madison Cawthorn, who has made some disgusting remarks over the past six months as well as over the past month.
