RALEIGH — Republican Madison Cawthorn has beaten Democrat Moe Davis in western N.C.’s 11th U.S. Congressional District race.
With nearly three-quarters of the precincts reporting in the district, Cawthorn has pulled in almost 54% of the vote.
Cawthorn is a Hendersonville native and, at age 25, would be the youngest congressman in the U.S. Congress. Davis is a retired Air Force colonel and attorney.
Cawthorn took an early victory lap with a three-word tweet:
Cry more, lib.
