#SC1: Breaking Down The Donald Trump Endorsement

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

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

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump wrote in a tweet Tuesday afternoon, less than three hours before polls closed in SC.

He also slammed Sanford as being 'better off in Argentina'.

The President announced his last-minute endorsement of Arrington as the polls neared closing on Tuesday, and also criticized Sanford, who has served the state's First Congressional District in the House of Representatives since 2013.

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

The South Carolina race highlighted primary voting in five states on Tuesday. That's why you see so many races in the "Toss Up" or "Lean Democrat" column for November's midterm elections. He was projected as the victor thanks to some help from Trump: The president shooed his biggest challenger, activist Danny Tarkanian, out of the race. I guess he doesn't. "Adam is smart, works hard, and knows how to win". He will be a great Governor.

Third, the dichotomy between what Republicans want and what the country at large wants is becoming so vast that it's hard for Republicans to run toward Trump in the primary and then away from him in the general election. It very much looks like the party of Ronald Reagan is gone forever.

It's an embarrassment of riches for Democrats, because, as we saw in Virginia 10 yesterday, you had several well-qualified women carving each other up to face another Republican woman, Barbara Comstock. State Sen. Jennifer Wexton is the establishment preference, but veteran Dan Helmer's viral ads - one of which compares the threat Trump poses to Osama bin Laden - have gained some national attention. A single presidential tweet can doom a career.

The prevailing view on the latter question is that Trump - just returning from a historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un - was simply preoccupied with (much) more pressing matters than a SC congressional race.

Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years.

In Nevada, the parties will choose their nominees in two competitive open seats. So far, CNN has been unable to project a victor in the Maine House District or either the Democrat or Republican primary for Maine governor.

Sanford is a second U.S. House member from the South attacked by a challenger for criticizing Trump.

The two primaries were sleepy Tuesday, but will be among the nation's most important battlegrounds in November.

Stewart is an outspoken defender of Confederate symbolism.

Virginia was a solid red state when I moved here in 2002. None of the three Senate candidates appears to match that region. Judy Woodruff gets reaction from former Virginia Rep. Tom Davis. 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.

North Dakota Republicans chose Rep. Kevin Cramer to challenge vulnerable Democratic Sen.

Gov. Henry McMaster also finished first in his race and will face John Warren in a runoff-another win for the president. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff.

Besides that district, considered key to the House battleground map this fall, Democrats in two other Virginia districts they hope to retake nominated women, including Abigail Spanberger in the 7th District and Elaine Luria in Virginia's 2nd District.
