Cawthorn responds to opposition group's video of him naked in bed

One of the groups actively campaigning against Rep. Madison Cawthorn has released a video clip purporting to show the North Carolina Republican naked in bed and "acting foolishly" with a friend.

Cawthorn tweeted after the video went viral: "A new hit against me.

In this video, I was trying to be funny with a friend. We were foolishly joking. Yes. I'm not giving up. I warned you about a drip drip campaign. Blackmail fails. We'll."

It's the latest controversy for the 26-year-old, who is running for re-election. The primary is on May 17.

Several of his Republican colleagues have been enraged by his antics.

Cawthorn rose to prominence in 2020 when he defeated then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows' endorsed candidate in the congressional primary.
