As Republicans across North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District head to the polls, some of them are bucking their party and their president by putting principle over politics.
Not only are they saying they won’t support Lynda Bennett in the Republican Second Primary runoff against Madison Cawthorn on June 23, they’re also saying they won’t support her in November if she wins, despite her endorsement by President Donald Trump.
“I love the man. I love what he’s doing,” said Henderson County Republican Jim Andrews. “The fact of the matter is, he’s probably never seen Lynda Bennett on stage. He’s probably never spoken to her. She talks about how she can’t wait to campaign with Trump. I guarantee you — Donald Trump does not want her speaking or campaigning with him. She would embarrass him.”
Let’s hope that Lyin’ Lynda’s past has finally caught up with her.
