Previous GOP House Rep Loses Primary After Attack By Trump

Runoff for SC GOP gubernatorial race; Rep. Smith wins Dem primary

In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year - the latest victim of intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era.

Under the system, now used in a few local jurisdictions, the election is over if one candidate wins a majority.

SC is an open primary state, meaning voters do not need to register with a political party to vote in that party's primary election. On the Republican side, Tarkanian (who is now running for the House instead of the Senate) will face off against state Sen.

Female candidates: By now, a trend is firmly established. The president's tweet also calls Virginia's Democratic Sen.

In South Carolina, Archie Parnell won the Democratic primary in the 5th District despite admitting to domestic abuse in the 1970s. Joe then declared that Sanford's loss was because he "said a couple of bad things about Donald Trump" and this was proof that the Republican Party is now a "Trumpist cult".

"If you want to know where the Republican Party is right now, Mark Sanford survives career-ending, what should have been a career-ending scandal", Scarborough said.

Trump's tweet just before 6 a.m. Wednesday also says Stewart has "a major chance of winning!". "Congrats to Katie Arrington!" the president wrote.

Trump had weighed in on the contest via Twitter the previous day while on his way back from Singapore.

It's possible that Sanford's regular bashing of the President may have been one factor, but let's not kid ourselves.

In June 2009, Sanford disappeared from public view for six days and later claimed that he had been hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda. "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes". Arrington has criticized Sanford throughout the campaign for his differences with Trump.

Trump says Kim 'trusts me, and I trust him'
It appears to be composed nearly entirely of generic stock footage and old news clips, including images of Trump and Kim smiling. The last-minute change came as both sides finalized preparations for the meeting, with two meetings at the Ritz Carlton.

Records tumble as Riccardo, Red Bull dominate
When he brought his Ferrari out for qualifying a day later, his problems - and the rest of the field - were behind him. Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today.

"I am grateful for the President's support", Arrington said.

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.

Within minutes, the Arrington campaign was also blasting out a robocall touting Trump's endorsement and encouraging voters to "get out and vote, even in the rain". Republican incumbent Rep. Bruce Poliquin will attempt to defend his seat against the victor of a three-person Democratic primary featuring state Rep. Jared Golden, bookseller Craig Olson and nonprofit director Lucas St. Clair.

The district, which includes Charleston and the southern coast, has not elected a Democrat since 1978. She has served in the Statehouse since 2016.

The district could go to a runoff thanks to ex-Democrat Dimitri Cherny, who has 3 percent of the vote.

Sanford previously represented the coastal district from 1995 to 2001.

Sanford apologized, though the episode ended with his wife divorcing him.

Sanford's defeat carries national implications as Republicans scramble to field their best candidates ahead of November's mid-term elections when they face energized Democrats desperate to retake control of Congress.

Stewart, who fended off two GOP rivals for the nomination, is a member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors.

The Senate landscape will become more settled Tuesday night as well.

In Nevada, Democrats tapped Rep. Jacky Rosen to take on Republican Sen. In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, April 7, 2018. Both are seeking re-election after having won in 2012 by just one percentage point. The president's record of keeping his promises resonates across the district. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.
