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.

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