  • Primary Results: Trump’s Hold on the GOP Is Showing

She will face another another woman, State Sen. William Timmons and state Rep. Dan Hamilton, both of Greenville, for once saying critical things about Trump. Local, state and national Democrats have called on him to drop out of the race in the deep-red district and say they won't support him if he wins. When you have a president of your party, he or she sets the policy agenda.

Sanford lost his first election ever Tuesday, beaten for the Republican nomination for another term in the coastal 1st District around Charleston by state Rep. Katie Arrington.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said. "He is better off in Argentina". Arrington, now a state representative, is challenging Sanford for the 1st Congressional District seat. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

In addition, Trump slammed Sanford on Twitter on Tuesday just hours before the election ended, and seemingly jabbed Sanford for his infamous 2009 scandal as Governor of SC, when he was caught having an extramarital affair with a woman from Argentina. But among the many peculiarities of the Trump presidency is his lack of interest in expanding his base, a fact that is even more surprising for someone who lost the popular vote by almost 3 million and carried his key electoral college states by less than 100,000 votes.

"That's ultimately what the race devolved down to, which was, was I Trump enough?"

Trump launched a pointedly personal attack on Sanford just hours before polls closed. If that doesn't happen, which is likely in the crowded governor's race for example, they will move to multiple rounds of tabulating votes.

"I think it's a reminder of the inflection point we're at in American politics", he said. "We have seen that this year".

Trump congratulated Arrington Wednesday morning in a tweet.

The result is that he has faced a primary challenge from Katie Arrington, a state representative who is campaigning on her loyalty to Trump.

Sanford has been an outspoken critic of Trump. "His past indiscretions could have played a role, absent criticisms from the president of the United States". Now that he's lost, his words also serve as a call for his fellow anti-Trump GOPers to keep fighting the good fight. Be a team player or Trump will support someone who will be. In a February 2017 Politico piece, he said Trump has "fanned the flames of intolerance".

Arrington has 52 percent of the vote to incumbent Mark Sanford's 45 percent, according to the AP.

Meanwhile, a candidate for governor who had done her best to imitate President Donald Trump ultimately rubbed voters the wrong way, while a once-popular Richland solicitor fell victim to a swarm of allegations about sexual harassment allegations and improper spending.

Felkel said he believes if not for Trump, McMaster would have finished in the 30s instead of the 40s. "Yeah, I think the four o'clock tweet got people when they were coming home from rush hour".

But Chamberlain said he has yet to be convinced.

Sanford survived that public confession to the affair to win two more terms to the U.S. House.

"This said, he did get a plurality of the votes this election", Chamberlain said.

State legislator Kelly Armstrong won the GOP nomination for Cramer's House seat and will be favored in November.

Though McMaster is in a runoff, Ransom said, Warren's success outside the Upstate is an open question, since he carried only Greenville and Pickens counties, he said.

Whatever delayed Trump's endorsement ...

Trump made a last-minute endorsement against Sanford on Tuesday.

Timmons finished the night with 19.20 percent of the vote, while Hamilton had 18.64 percent and Bright had 24.93 percent.

Democrats notched another win in state legislative special elections on Tuesday, the party's 43rd red-to-blue flip since President Donald Trump stepped into the White House a year ago.
