Republican critic of Trump loses in South Carolina primary

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

Tuesday demonstrated yet again just how strong the anti-incumbency mood is among Republican primary voters. Jeff Flake, into retirement. "This keeps with his policy to support all GOP incumbents running for re-election". Alabama Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff.

In an interview with Politico past year, Sanford said Trump had "fanned the flames of intolerance" and called him unprepared for the presidency.

Nevada voters were deciding a competitive Democratic primary race for governor Tuesday, a contest that became the state's most closely watched after President Trump helped clear a path to the GOP nomination for vulnerable Sen. In South Carolina voters rejected incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, who was attacked for being insufficiently loyal to Trump. "He is better off in Argentina", Trump tweeted.

First-term state Rep. Katie Arrington (R-Dorchester) defeated Sanford, earning more than 51 percent of the vote to Sanford's 46 percent.

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote, referring to Sanford's trip to South America in 2009 to have an affair while his unknowing staff in the governor's office told reporters he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

With his late entry into the race, Trump let Sanford know that has not gone unnoticed. One ad said "it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time".

President Donald Trump has congratulated his loyalist Corey Stewart for winning Virginia's Republican Senate primary. Tim Kaine in the fall. And Democrats in Virginia backed women in key races that could determine control of the House. In Virginia, Republicans went with a candidate who was so over-the-top Trumpy that he wound up being fired from the president's campaign. "I think a tweet at the eleventh hour is not going to decide a race one way or another".

In the past, Sanford said the president should "just shut up" and "quit responding" to critics and focus on the issues at hand. "And he has Stewart voters to thank for it".

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. She has not called for a single-payer, government-run health insurance system, as some Democratic House primary winners in California, Nebraska and Pennsylvania have. Both Horsford and Hardy want their old job back; both won their primaries Tuesday, setting up a rematch in one of the swingy-est districts in the nation. Twice, they said yes.

Sanford endorsed Texas Sen.

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). Jacque confirmed his concession in a phone call with CNN.

If she holds on, Arrington would face Democrat Joe Cunningham in November.

Two low-key primaries went exactly as expected Tuesday.

The GOP nominee faces him in November. Democrats in Nevada chose Representative Jacky Rosen, a first-term lawmaker and member of the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus, to challenge GOP Senator Dean Heller.

This caused Scarborough to muse that the Republican Party no longer reflects traditional conservatism, so he wondered what will happen to people who still hold onto that kind of political thinking. The Republican Party may be Trump's party, but a number of Republicans aren't happy about it.

The Senate landscape is becoming more settled Tuesday night as well. 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.
