  • Trump congratulates Sanford challenger for win

Sanford also said in a 2017 interview that Trump "has fanned the flames of intolerance".

Sanford would be the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year.

Sanford was not the only establishment Republican to face challenges Tuesday.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake was driven into retirement. In Alabama, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby is in a July 17 runoff against former congressman Bobby Bright. Arrington has repeatedly called Sanford a "Never Trumper", due to the incumbent's criticisms of the president.

On Tuesday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy broke with Trump to say he supported Sanford. Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump tweeted, adding, "He is better off in Argentina". "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote.

Republican Rep. Mark Sanford conceded his re-election race to state Rep. Katie Arrington, who ran as a Trump ally.

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

Henry McMaster, an early supporter of President Donald Trump, was forced into a runoff for the Republican gubernatorial nomination Tuesday.

Argentina launch their campaign against Iceland on Saturday, with games to follow against Croatia and Nigeria in Group D. Not just because we won but before the World Cup I got a very hard injury and a long time for recovering".

Mark Sanford, who earned national ridicule in 2012 after claiming he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail" when he was really spending time with his Argentine mistress, only to resurrect his political career with a second stint in Congress, crashed to defeat against a far-right challenger endorsed by Trump. Stewart had accused the party of inadequately defending the candidate after the release of a tape where Trump bragged about groping women. She faces six opponents in her primary. Tim Kaine in the fall. Ballots will vary depending on your location (a.k.a. your county and congressional/state districts) and on the party primary you choose to vote in (Democratic or Republican). "Every time I think things can't get worse they do, and there is no end in sight". "And he has Stewart voters to thank for it".

With his late entry into the race, Trump let Sanford know that has not gone unnoticed. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%.

But in Virginia, Democrats are selecting House candidates to run in some of the nation's most competitive races.

The race is perhaps the most closely watched matchup in Tuesday's slate of primaries, which also include Virginia selecting a Republican to take on Democratic Sen. "Going into this race, that was Mark Sanford". Including Arrington in SC, at least 14 women emerged as nominees in states that also included Maine, North Dakota and Nevada. Jacque confirmed his concession in a phone call with CNN. For the Democrats, James Smith takes the primary there with 62 percent of the vote. On the Republican side, Tarkanian (who is now running for the House instead of the Senate) will face off against state Sen.

Two low-key primaries went exactly as expected Tuesday. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, April 7, 2018.

AP also projects Charleston attorney Joe Cunningham will be the Democratic nominee in the 1st District.

By Tuesday night, Meadows was lamenting Sanford's fate.

Election nights are long - no matter what.

And in suburban Richmond's Seventh District, former Central Intelligence Agency officer Abigail Spanberger was declared the victor for the Democratic nomination, setting the stage for a fall campaign against GOP Representative David Brat.
