Mark Sanford, Fromer SC Governor, Loses Seat in U.S. House

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

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

But Arrington, who works for a defense contractor, has exploited that trait, pointing out Sanford's call for Trump to release his tax returns, his vote against Trump's border wall proposal, and his calling proposed tariffs on alumni and steel "an experiment with stupidity".

The South Carolina Republican, who served in Congress from 1995-2001, was re-elected in 2013 in a special election in his Charleston-based district. Heidi Heitkamp. The primaries are sleepy, but the two states will be among the nation's most competitive Senate battlegrounds in the fall.

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.

Female candidates: By now, a trend is firmly established. In Virginia, women won Democratic primaries in four out of four congressional districts that could be competitive this November.

In South Carolina, Archie Parnell won the Democratic primary in the 5th District despite admitting to domestic abuse in the 1970s.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump tweeted.

"I am extremely disappointed that a candidate like Corey Stewart could win the Republican nomination for US Senate", former Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling tweeted. One ad said "it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time". The president took note of his last-minute intervention in the race.

My political representatives didn't want me to get involved in the Mark Sanford primary thinking that Sanford would easily win - but with a few hours left I felt that Katie was such a good candidate, and Sanford was so bad, I had to give it a shot. With much of the vote counted, state Rep. Katie Arrington was on the cusp of winning outright.

Earlier in the day, Trump frenemy Sen.

Arrington has aired several TV commercials pointing out Sanford's criticism of the president. He first claimed he'd been "hiking the Appalachian Trail" but later admitted to an extramarital affair in Argentina.

Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda.

South Carolina Republicans expressed their discontent during primary voting Tuesday as President Donald Trump sought to influence the race.

Then he delivered a scathing rebuke of Sanford's personal life, writing: "He is better off in Argentina". He backed Sanford's pro-Trump challenger, state legislator Katie Arrington, for November's congressional elections. "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes".

President Trump: It's overly simplistic to say that South Carolina GOP congressman Mark Sanford lost his primary Tuesday because of Trump.

The Republican congressman Justin Amash, a fellow libertarian leaning Trump critic, also tweeted his support for Sanford, in a message aimed at Trump, writing: "He's one of the most principled, consistent, and conservative members of Congress I've ever known".

Sanford also reiterates "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". 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.

State Senator Jennifer Wexton won the Democratic nomination in the state's 10th district, which includes parts of Northern Virginia. It's the same reason Alabama Rep. Martha Roby, who blasted Trump after the "Access Hollywood" tape became public in 2016, is headed to a runoff to defend her seat.

That result would lead to a runoff between McMaster and Warren, with Catherine Templeton eliminated on 20 percent of the vote. But Sanford's SC district is considered a safe Republican seat, meaning the outcome is unlikely to play a role in November's battle for control of the House.
