Trump helps take down Mark Sanford

John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

Incumbent Republican Congressman Mark Sanford lost in the SC primary race to challenger Katie Arrington on Tuesday, after President Trump made an election-day social media move to hit out at Sanford and endorse Arrington in the race.

In defense of his stance on Trump, Sanford has said he criticizes anyone regardless of party if they deserve it.

Arrington made Sanford's disagreements with Trump a cornerstone of her campaign.

McMaster would need a majority to avoid a runoff on June 26. In turn, Arrington sought to cast the three-term congressman as a traitor who was opposed to the president's agenda.

The South Carolina race highlighted primary voting in five states on Tuesday. In between, he served two terms as the state's governor.

In the Second Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Taylor will face the victor of the Democratic primary between former U.S. Navy commander Elaine Luria and schoolteacher Karen Mallard.

Corey Stewart, the bombastic conservative who built his public image on championing the Confederate flag and monuments like Charlottesville's Robert E. Lee statue and has appeared with white nationalists, won the Republican Senate nomination.

And it will help to consolidate peace and stability across the wider Western Balkans, ' he added. The next step, he said, is for the deal to be signed by the foreign ministries of both countries.


In a state represented by moderate Republican Sen.

In both parties, a dominant theme was the continued emergence of female candidates.

Polls have closed in both states and well as Maine, North Dakota and Nevada.

Sanford, a consistent critic of Trump from within the president's own party, lost to state legislator Katie Arrington. That would be the one now held by Mark "Hiking the Appalachian Trail" Sanford. "He is better off in Argentina", the president tweeted. The president took note of his last-minute intervention in the race.

Sanford conceded to state Rep. Katie Arrington after 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, telling the crowd that he is a "realist".

Earlier in the day, Trump frenemy Sen.

Sanford's dissent to Trump's takeover of the GOP dates back almost two years.

That was not enough for Trump, who also mocked Sanford with a reference to a 2009 scandal when the then governor disappeared for days before surfacing to say he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail".

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA". In Tuesday's primary, he lost to state Representative Katie Arrington, who had campaigned against Sanford by branding him a "Never Trumper". "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes". The president himself weighed in by stoking memories of the affair, tweeting that Sanford was "better off in Argentina".

He ran a total of 1,125 spots in the district's two biggest television markets at an estimated cost of $187,700, according to data from Kantar Media's CMAG, which tracks political advertising. But I'm guessing that the endorsement put Arrington over the top.

Meanwhile, longtime state Rep. James Smith has won the Democratic seat.

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.

Sanford's marriage ended but his political career didn't.

The victor of the Democratic race is expected to face Republican state Attorney General Adam Laxalt in November.
