Paralyzed Candidate Stands For America, Urges Voters To Back Trump In Powerful Speech

Republican congressional candidate Madison Cawthorn, who was left paralyzed from the waist down after an automobile accident when he was 18, stood during his speech at the Republican National Convention.

The Daily Caller reports the surprising moment came as Cawthorn told the crowd that he has spent his life overcoming “adversity.”

“I know something about adversity,” he said, encouraging others to rise and “make a difference.”

“I choose to fight for the future, to seize the high ground and retake the Shining City on a Hill,” he continued per the Daily Caller. “While the radical left wants to dismantle, defund, and destroy, Republicans, under President Trump’s leadership, want to rebuild, restore and renew.”

Cawthorn added: “The American idea my ancestors fought for during the Revolutionary War is as exciting and revolutionary today as it was 250 years ago.”

“I say to Americans who love our country – young and old – be a radical for freedom,” he also said, standing to his feet. “Be a radical for liberty. Be a radical for our republic. For which I stand.”

  1. The the next occasion Someone said a weblog, I’m hoping that this doesnt disappoint me just as much as this blog. After all, Yes, it was my solution to read, but I actually thought youd have something intriguing to say. All I hear is often a lot of whining about something you could fix should you werent too busy interested in attention.
