Incoming Republican North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn said at
a Turning Point USA conference Monday that he will contest the
election and fund primary opponents against GOP members not
publicly urging “for fair, free and just elections.”

Cawthorn said the Constitution says “that state legislators
are the only body that can change election law within their own
states,” video
of the conference shows. He said numerous governors and state
secretaries in swing states have violated the law.

“And so because of that on Jan 6 as the people of Western
North Carolina sent me to Washington to do a job, I will be
contesting the election,” Cawthorn said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell
advised GOP senators not to contest the outcomes of
the election on Jan. 6 in a private phone call with the caucus, two
sources familiar with the matter said,
according
to Politico. Senate Majority Whip John
Thune
and Republican Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt reiterated
McConnell’s thoughts.

Madison joined the audience in yelling USA once and said he has
“a message for all of the Republicans across the country”
during the video.

“If you are not on the record calling for fair, free and just
elections now and in the future, I will come to your district and I
will fund a primary opponent against you,” Cawthorn said in the
video.

Not doing this to help my
career in Washington, in fact this will most likely harm it. But no
one should go to Washington as a career. Go there to serve the
people. And on behalf of the people I am contesting this election

Cawthorn called serving in D.C. a mission rather than a career
and gave a shout out to audience members from North Carolina during
the video.

“For too long, for way too long the Republican party has just
been the party of no that has always conceded things. They have let
God out of our schools, they have let socialism creep into our
country. I’m telling you when I look out into this crowd, I see
the new Republican Party,” Cawthorn said during the video.

Representatives for Cawthorn didn’t immediately respond to a
request for comment.
