Sanford upset in GOP primary

Sanford upset in GOP primary

On Tuesday, five states - Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia - will vote to determine party nominees ahead of November's midterm elections. Here are the night's winners and losers.

But Arrington has hammered Sanford for his criticism of President Donald Trump, and she enough GOP voters in the district may agree with her.

"In response to the president's tweet, Michigan Rep. Justin Amash came to his colleague's defense, hitting back at Trump's remarks by replying, "@MarkSanford's job is to support and defend the Constitution. Sanford, who was married, fell in love with an Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, and went to visit her after telling his staff that he would be "hiking the Appalachian trail". He somewhat improbably won election to Congress a few years later. In South Carolina voters rejected incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, who was attacked for being insufficiently loyal to Trump.

His biggest challenger, state Rep. Katie Arrington, has characterized Sanford as a disloyal Never-Trumper.

"And unlike you", he tweeted at Trump, "Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before". State Attorney General Janet Mills is expected to win the Democratic nomination, while business executive Shawn Moody is the frontrunner in a close, four-person race for the Republican nomination. She'll face off against Republican Representative Barbara Comstock, who won her third term in 2016 by six points in a district that overwhelmingly backed Hillary Clinton.

Republicans expressed concern on Tuesday that Stewart's nomination will hurt GOP candidates down ballot. Voters approved it again. Pete Domenici and Michelle Laxalt, the daughter of former Nevada governor and senator Paul Laxalt. This experiment in democracy isn't going away anytime soon, no matter how people in power may feel about it.

Female candidates: By now, a trend is firmly established. Women are running for election in much higher numbers than ever before, and a notable number of them are winning their primaries.

Democrats will also be watching the outcomes of Virginia's 2nd District (GOP Rep. Scott Taylor), 7th District (GOP Rep. Dave Brat) and 5th District (retiring GOP Rep. Tom Garrett), where they hope to be competitive in the fall.

Nevada and North Dakota are home to two of the most pivotal Senate races this year. This race won't have a victor or loser until November, but it's worth noting that Comstock (R-Va.) ceded almost 40 percent of the vote to a little-known GOP primary challenger on Tuesday.

Taking down an incumbent is no easy feat in American politics, but this race was really a referendum on the relative strength of the anti-Trump contingent in the Republican Party as it struggles to hold off the #MAGA cult of personality. Now the seat is open after the new congressman resigned over a sexual harassment scandal. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%.

Some of the other notable races were taking place in Virginia, where Democrats are seeking to capture some of the 23 Republican seats they would need to reclaim the majority in the U.S. House.

As voters made their primary choices in five states, SC wasn't the only place where Republicans favored conservatives who are seen as closely tied to Trump and his agenda. This special election nearly didn't happen; Gov. Scott Walker (R) tried to cancel it, but the courts forced him to hold it. Regardless of his own position vis-a-vis the president, however, Sanford noted that Trump's tweet "may cost me an election in this case but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president".

Trump has been accused of extra martial affairs.

In a state represented by moderate Republican Sen.

He was the top aide to Trump's presidential campaign in Virginia in 2016, but was sacked for staging an unauthorized protest of the Republican National Committee.

Corey Stewart, the bombastic conservative who built his public image on championing Confederate symbols, will win the Republican Senate nomination in Virginia, CNN projects. "Primary voters in the Republican Party have devolved into a Trumpist cult".

In South Carolina, Republican Gov. Henry McMaster - an early and vocal supporter of Trump who replaced former Gov. Nikki Haley - fell short of 50% and is headed to a June 26 runoff with the second-place finisher, businessman John Warren.
