In a recent interview, 25 year old Congressman-elect Madison Cawthorn said he envisions a brand new Republican party that is bigger and bolder.
Cawthorn told Fox News “my election was really a referendum on the establishment. They’re really sending me up here to fight against that.”
“I don’t owe anybody except the constituents of my district my victory,” Cawthorn continued “and so because of that, I’ll serve them no matter what. And I think that’s how it should be.”
During the interview Cawthorn commented on the fact that young voters overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
“There is a generational time bomb going off in the Republican Party and that’s because they have failed to connect with this new generation,” Cawthorn acknowledged “They’ve failed to iterate the fact that we are the party of freedom.”
Cawthorn said “I really want the Republican Party to be bolder,” explaining his vision.
“I want us to be a big tent party that says I don’t care if you’re gay. I don’t care what your religion is. As long as you believe in freedom and believe in our founding principles, you’re welcome in our party. I really want our party defined as the Freedom Party,” he added.
