Mark Sanford fights to survive in SC 1st District congressional results

13 June, 2018, 16:38 | Author: Wade Massey
  • John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

Here are the night's winners and losers.

In an interview with Politico a year ago, Sanford said Trump had "fanned the flames of intolerance" and called him unprepared for the presidency. That refers to 2009, when Sanford's aides said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail while he actually visited a woman with whom he was having an affair in Argentina. He somewhat improbably won election to Congress a few years later. Scarborough noted that Sanford has said a number of critical statements about Trump in the past, so the MSNBC host flat out asked "Why don't we just say [the GOP] has devolved into a cult?"

"I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love", tweeted Trump, who was traveling aboard Air Force One after his summit meeting with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un. "He is better off in Argentina". But as Sanford spoke, the race was still too close to call. It's the same reason Alabama Rep. Martha Roby, who blasted Trump after the "Access Hollywood" tape became public in 2016, is headed to a runoff to defend her seat.

But the race's two other candidates have both positioned themselves as outsiders, banking on voters' desire to elect political newcomers. Voters approved it again. Pete Domenici and Michelle Laxalt, the daughter of former Nevada governor and senator Paul Laxalt, CNN projects. This experiment in democracy isn't going away anytime soon, no matter how people in power may feel about it.

In both parties, a dominant theme was the continued emergence of female candidates. Women are running for election in much higher numbers than ever before, and a notable number of them are winning their primaries. In Virginia, women won Democratic primaries in four out of four congressional districts that could be competitive this November.

Nevada and North Dakota are home to two of the most pivotal Senate races this year. That just crossed the 50 percent threshold to avoid a runoff later this month between the top two contenders. One seat they're targeting is in Nevada.

One of the most interesting GOP primaries in Nevada involves legal brothel owner Dennis Hof challenging GOP state Rep. James Oscarson for his seat in the statehouse.

In the Second Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Taylor will face the victor of the Democratic primary between former U.S. Navy commander Elaine Luria and schoolteacher Karen Mallard. This special election nearly didn't happen; Gov. Scott Walker (R) tried to cancel it, but the courts forced him to hold it.

In defense of his stance on Trump, Sanford has said he criticizes anyone regardless of party if they deserve it.

Earlier in the day, Trump frenemy Sen.

Tuesday, Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, had a stern answer to Trump's tweet.

State and national Republicans admitted there's virtually no chance Stewart will defeat Democratic Sen. Nevada, North Dakota, Maine and Virginia also chose candidates for the midterm election on November 6, when Democrats hope to capture a majority of the U.S. Congress. On Tuesday, Virginia GOP primary voters ended up nominating a former Trump official who has defended Confederate symbols, Corey Stewart, to challenge Kaine.

His past was bound to come back to haunt him in the general election.

The president congratulated last week for the Republican Party's showing in Tuesday's California primaries.
