The controversial Republican was defeated by state Sen. Chuck Edwards.

Rep. Madison Cawthorn lost the Republican primary for his House seat in North Carolina on Tuesday — halting the young, pro-Trump congressman’s rise after a series of scandals plagued his short tenure in Washington.

Cawthorn’s campaign said he conceded the race to state Sen. Chuck Edwards, who rose to the top of a packed Republican primary and secured endorsements from North Carolina’s most powerful Republicans, including Sen. Thom Tillis. A super PAC that had previously backed Tillis ran ads targeting Cawthorn’s “lies” and quoted a newspaper columnist calling him an “attention-seeking embarrassment.”
