How President Trump factored into Tuesday's primaries

2018 Election: What to expect in Nevada, Virginia, Maine, North Dakota and South Carolina - Philly

After attacking Sanford, the president backed Arrington.

While Trump is popular with Republicans, opinion polls show his general approval hovering in the low 40s% overall. The woman who beat Mark Sanford that's a major Trumper is a woman.

McMaster, an early supporter of the president's 2016 campaign, had Trump's full endorsement, marked by a weekend tweet. Trump critic Rick Wilson, directing his barbs to Trump, writes, "Nothing you do matters to this Congress".

Though Wexton favors a ban on the sale of assault weapons, she defies what has been the tendency in some swing districts to nominate Democrats with liberal profiles on other key issues. Agreeing to disagree is "a sign of health in our political system".

Sanford was not the only establishment Republican to face challenges Tuesday. In Alabama, US Rep. Martha Roby is in a July 17 runoff against former congressman Bobby Bright. And she reminded them who she thinks leads them: "We are the party of President Donald J. Trump". He said he might not certify the election results. Be a team player or Trump will support someone who will be. That was a snarky reference to Sanford's adulterous affair when he was governor, in 2009, from a president who has been identified as an alleged adulterer.

Then there was the Twitter post just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

In more than two decades of politics and in spite of one of the great sex scandals in political history, Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) had never lost an election.

Norwegian lawmakers nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize
President Barack Obama, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 , is the most recent American recipient. The process of considering candidates and awarding the Nobel Peace Prize is done in Norway.

The transformation of the GOP under Trump makes some lawmakers uneasy.

It's "becoming a cultish thing, isn't it?" said retiring Sen.

Cramer is in his third term representing North Dakota's at-large congressional district, giving him strong name recognition and a track record of being elected to statewide office. Meanwhile, Sanford's defeat means Congress will lose an advocate for limited government and individual liberty at the end of the current term. Despite the effect that Trump may or may not have had on the race, Kondik also pointed out that Sanford, who garnered just 56 percent of the vote in the 2016 Republican primary in his district against a little-known challenger, was already a prime candidate to become one of the handful of members who fall victim to primary challengers each election cycle. On the Republican side, Tarkanian (who is now running for the House instead of the Senate) will face off against state Sen.

As former Speaker John Boehner said recently, "There is no Republican Party".

"It's Trump's party now". In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp. "That's only more true today, given his high popularity among Republican voters".

In Sanford, he chose a well-known former governor, who among other criticisms held him partly responsible for a shooting at a congressional baseball practice by stoking national tensions. "What they will not support is someone they view as going after the president personally", Heye said. Also, why did it take so long for Trump to get into the game? She routinely referred to herself as a "buzz saw" and "conservative outsider", hoping to play to Trump's base in the governor's race. She later told AP that while she supported Florida Sen. In his remarks Tuesday night, he said: "I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". Trump's rise has brought the GOP's intellectual bankruptcy into even sharper relief.
