Less than 48 hours after his shocking defeat in North Carolina's primary election, Rep. Madison Cawthorn took to Instagram to post a defiant, vengeful, and typo-riddled message promising a "Dark MAGA" comeback.

After decrying the establishment-driven campaign to unseat him following a long series of scandals, Cawthorn credited those he called his true allies, specifically naming figures like former President Donald Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), "the great Charlie Kirk," and Tucker Carlson.

"I am on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal," Cawthorn said. "It's time for the rise of the new right, it's time for Dark MAGA to truly take command."

Before vowing that this Dark MAGA would "defeat the cowardly and weak members of our own party," Cawthorn said the "time for gentile politics as usual has come to an end."(Later, Cawthorn corrected the typo so it would read, "genteel politics.")

GOP state Sen. Chuck Edwards defeated Cawthorn by 1.5 percentage points in Tuesday night's primary election, and the 26-year old incumbent may serve out his term until January 2023.

Evening jbb...well this is politics but just not yours.

There will be a change of government here in Australia...will go from Liberal to Labor...oh the joy!!

Will not be exactly good news for the US.. Labor does not have a good track record in that respect.

Still that's it over for another four years. Taken 3.5 hours to determine our government...no stuffing around here...🐨🐨

Evening jbb...yep as I said previously no one bats an eye here...

No riots, demonstrations, demand for recounts etc and even better when it's quick and doesn't drag on for days.

Yep peace and prosperity to you too...it's all good...🦘🦘

Good evening shona, not all bad for us as both parties support AUKUS and obtaining nuclear submarines.

Good news for your upper middle class earners as tax rates drop and child care subsidies increase for them.

Taken 3.5 hours to determine our government...no stuffing around here..

Not even a hanging chads, pregnant chads, dimpled ballots or butterfly ballots - amazingly well done. Β G’day mate.

Evening Drinker..nope just the old pencil and paper ballot which was a metre long..

But hey you don't fix what ain't broke...it works for us..can recommend it for over there!!

Yep we will survive the change as we have always done...and on that note I must away.. dragging the eye balls a bit tonight and heading for bed... after I call the cat in.

Enjoy your day...πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
