Trump helps take down Mark Sanford

SC incumbents challenged, Va. women rise as 5 states vote

The GOP also asked its voters if they support only allowing members of a party to vote in primaries. Despite the scandal over the affair, he completed his second term as governor, and voters sent him to Congress two years later. Tim Kaine and choosing nominees in several competitive House races, Nevada and North Dakota choosing their Senate candidates and ME for the first time trying - and voting on whether to keep - a new voting system in which voters rank their preferences, rather than only selecting one.

Rep. Mark Sanford, one of President Donald Trump's sharpest Republican critics, was ousted by a primary challenger on Tuesday after Trump waged an extraordinary last-minute effort to defeat him.

Republican Corey Stewart beat state lawmaker Nick Freitas and Chesapeake minister E.W. Jackson.

Trump weighed in himself less than three hours before the polls closed Tuesday.

"You don't fire the coach and hire a rookie", McMaster said in a speech after results came in, touted business investments under his leadership and the Trump endorsement. "He's campaigning for me".

Despite her attempt to tie herself to Trump, Arrington supported Florida Sen.

Stewart campaigned heavily on preserving Virginia's Confederate monuments and is an immigrant hard-liner who boasts of the number of immigrants in the country illegally who have been deported from his county. Democrat Hillary Clinton carried it over Trump by 10 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election.

That's in part due to Virginia's changing demographics, particularly the northern part of the state becoming more dense, more diverse and more progressive. Indeed, it voted Republican in every presidential election from 1952 through 2004, with the exception of the 1964 debacle.

In the state's Second Congressional District, which includes the Hampton Roads region, Democrat Elaine Luria was the declared victor over rival Karen Mallard with 95 percent of the vote tallied.

"That's just what happens in contested primaries", said the speaker, who is retiring rather than seek re-election.

But Arrington has hammered Sanford for his criticism of President Donald Trump, and she enough GOP voters in the district may agree with her.

Marco Rubio during the 2016 SC primary campaign, and later praised 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for a scathing rebuke of Trump, whom Romney called "a phony, a fraud".

Arrington says Sanford criticized Trump too much, calling him a "Never Trumper".

With 99 percent of the vote tallied, Arrington had 50.6 percent of the vote - a figure that would cinch the nomination outright.

"Based on the numbers I see, I think I'll end up losing this election", Sanford told supporters Tuesday night, just before the Associated Press projected Arrington's victory.

Republican Senator Bob Corker, who declined to run for re-election in conservative Tennessee after tangling with Trump, said on Wednesday the party was now in "a odd place", and not a good one. Sanford, who was married, fell in love with an Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, and went to visit her after telling his staff that he would be "hiking the Appalachian trail".

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", the president tweeted, using the initials for his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again". He is MIA and nothing but trouble.

Congressman Mark Sanford is best remembered nationally for a highly public extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina several years ago.

In South Carolina's 1st Congressional District, Freedom Caucus member Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., is facing a tough primary challenge, perhaps the toughest of his political career.
