From joint statement from Congressman Madison Cawthorn (R, NC-11) and Catalina Lauf for Congress Campaign released through Fox News and POLITICO:
Hendersonville, N.C. – Congressman Madison Cawthorn endorsed House Candidate, Catalina Lauf, for Illinois 16th Congressional District today.
Congressman Cawthorn issued the following statement:
“America faces a choice in 2022, a choice between electing voices for all the people or voices for only the powerful.
“Establishment hacks, who prioritize the approval of CNN, Nancy Pelosi, and radical Democrats in Congress have more in common with socialist activists than American Patriots. Elected officials, who side with Pelosi and sideline the American people, have no place in the Republican Party.
“I say here today: political insider Adam Kinzinger has no place in the Republican Party. I am the first to condemn D.C. insider Kinzinger and the first to endorse a powerful America First, political outsider, in Catalina Lauf. I assure you I will not be the last. She is dedicated to working for, not against, the interests of the people of Illinois, and I know that she will be a powerful fighter in Washington.
“The day of the pandering politician is over, it is time for American lions to rise, and in 2022 this nation will hear the roar of freedom.”
Congressional candidate Catalina Lauf joined Congressman Cawthorn, stating:
“I am honored to have Congressman Madison Cawthorn’s endorsement. Since he was elected, Madison has shown passion, tenacity, authenticity, and courage. He has been a lion on the Hill, a fighting voice the American people desperately deserve.
“Our campaign has been about emulating Congressmen and women like Madison: being dutiful servants of the American people, possessing grit in the face of adversity, and putting the needs of our constituents first. We are grateful for the faith Congressman Cawthorn has shown in our campaign and our mission to take on Pelosi Republican, Adam Kinzinger. I look forward to fighting for our values beside him in Congress.”
