But Madison Cawthorn has some pretty big guns, and so I would like to challenge him to a sprint instead.”

Gorka offered to arm wrestle Cawthorn, who was partially paralyzed in a 2014 car accident, in Boebert’s stead.

“They’re raising money on it, and you have all these Republican congressmen saying come work for me,” said Mark Richards, who represented Rittenhouse in the Kenosha, Wisconsin, homicide trial. “They want to trade on his celebrity, and I think it’s disgusting.”
