根據美國有線電視新聞網CNN報導，本次美國大選，也選出新任參眾兩議院的議員，讓民主與共和兩黨在美國國會的勢力分布重新洗牌，來自北卡羅來納州，今年25歲的共和黨代表「科索恩 Madison Cawthorn」破紀錄當選，成為美國200多年來最年輕的眾議員。
Madison Cawthorn is an 8th generation resident of North Carolina’s 11th Congressional district. His ancestors have served Western North Carolina communities for over 200 years including in the Revolutionary War.
Madison was homeschooled in Hendersonville and was nominated to the U.S. Naval Academy by Rep. Mark Meadows in 2014. However, Madison’s plans were derailed that year after he nearly died in a tragic automobile accident that left him partially paralyzed and in a wheelchair.
Madison’s ordeal built his faith, made him a fighter, helped him appreciate every day, and inspired him to help everyone he encounters overcome whatever adversity they face in their daily lives.
Today, Madison is a small businessman. He is the owner and CEO of a real estate investment company. Madison is also a motivational speaker. He challenges people across the nation to have faith, work hard, play by the rules and pursue the American dream.
