(RepublicanInformer.com)- Rep. Madison Cawthorn, the 25-year-old Republican congresswoman who beat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the youngest legislator after last year’s election, reportedly married his fiancée Cristina Bayardelle last weekend.
Cawthorn, who is one of the loudest pro-Trump voices in Congress, famously beat the candidate endorsed by President Donald Trump in the 2020 primary and won the election, representing North Carolina.
He published photographs from his wedding day on Twitter, showing him and his wife marrying in front of a large cross.
The legislator, who was hit by a car in 2014 and is now paralyzed from the waist down, could be seen standing with the aid of a walker in the photographs.
On April 3rd of 2014 my life changed. A car accident put me in a wheelchair and dashed my hopes for the future. On April 3rd of 2021 my life has once again changed. Marrying Cristina Bayardelle, now Cristina Cawthorn is the greatest honor, privilege and adventure of my life. pic.twitter.com/bqmtAUbsIS

“On April 3rd of 2014 my life changed,” he wrote. “A car accident put me in a wheelchair and dashed my hopes for the future. On April 3rd of 2021 my life has once again changed. Marrying Cristina Bayardelle, now Cristina Cawthorn, is the greatest honor, privilege and adventure of my life.”
It’s not the first time that Cawthorn’s followers have seen his now-wife. Back in October, Cawthorne introduced followers to his fiancée, explaining that she was a CrossFit athlete and an anesthesiologist assistant. The pair reportedly met through a friend and “hit it off.”
Cawthorn faced criticism last week after left-wing commentators claimed that he proudly touted the benefits of the massive $1.9 trillion COVID relief deal forced through Congress by Democrats.
After voting against the so-called “American Rescue Plan,” which allocated billions of dollars in funds to non-white farmers – a race-based reparations plan heavily promoted by President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris – Cawthorn tweeted that he was “proud” to see taxpayer dollars return to his district through the grant funding.
The Daily Beast reported that his comments were hypocritical, even though Cawthorn has not changed his mind on the extremist provisions that were hidden within the package.
“Cawthorn is hardly the only Republican to try having it both ways on the relief package, which the GOP slammed in Washington but has found to be popular back home. Shortly after it passed, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) praised a provision to aid struggling restaurants, and multiple GOP lawmakers have devoted time and resources to helping constituents access the new round of stimulus checks that they voted against sending out,” the far-left outlet claimed.
