David Madison Cawthorn (born August 1, 1995)

David Madison Cawthorn is an American politician who has served as the U.S. representative for North Carolina's 11th congressional district since 2021.

A member of the Republican Party, he was elected to Congress in 2020 to succeed Republican Mark Meadows.

Cawthorn is the youngest member of Congress since Jed Johnson Jr., as well as the first born in the 1990s.

As a congressman, he focuses on messaging instead of legislation.

He claimed the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent, and despite conceding in a January 23, 2021, interview that it was not, he has since called the election "rigged" and "stolen".

Cawthorn describes himself as a Christian and a constitutional conservative.

In August 2020, during his campaign for Congress, several women accused him of sexually aggressive behavior, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault.

Numerous former classmates support allegations that Cawthorn harassed women while in college.
