A GOP PAC affiliated with Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) has launched an attack ad targeting Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) spotlighting his ‘lies for the limelight.’
From The Hill:
The video ad, titled “Madison Cawthorn’s Lies,” was uploaded to Youtube on Thursday by Results for NC, a Super PAC tied to Tillis. The ad will also air on cable.
The video knocks Cawthorn as an “attention-seeking embarrassment” to the Republican Party. The PAC’s ad knocking Cawthorn, 26, comes as the freshman lawmaker faces several primary challengers who view him as vulnerable.
Among his many lies he’s told in just the past couple of years: training for the Paralympics, being a real estate entrepreneur, working full time for Mark Meadows, that his best friend left him to die in the car accident when he saved his life, that he was going to attend the Naval Academy on a football scholarship, and much more.
Last month he got in trouble telling a conservative podcast that Republican lawmakers have invited him to orgies and done cocaine bumps in front of him.
New: a super PAC aligned with Sen. Thom Tillis is dropping $310k to air a hard-hitting ad attacking Rep. Madison Cawthorn.
"In perpetual pursuit of celebrity, Cawthorn will lie about anything," it declares https://t.co/W4995HUeLt

Thank you to @ThomTillis’s super PAC for spending over $300,000 to run an anti-Cawthorn ad locally. The ad doesn’t mention any other candidate, so will likely help everyone else as well: @ChuckEdwards4NC @WendyforWNC, @CuttForCongress, & @Bruce_OConnell https://t.co/y3tGXVi1SB
