Trump targets this SC candidate with a primary day tweet

Trump's post was made less than three hours before polls closed.

While none of South Carolina's House seats are expected to be competitive in November, incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford is facing a hard Republican primary on Tuesday against state Rep. Katie Arrington.

Sanford said those statements "may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president".

"He's MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump continued.

Within minutes, the Arrington campaign was also blasting out a robocall touting Trump's endorsement and encouraging voters to "get out and vote, even in the rain".

That was a reference to Sanford's surprise disappearance from the state as governor, which he later revealed was to further his affair with an Argentine woman. He won the Charleston-based congressional seat in a special election, and established himself as a fiscally conservative, libertarian-leaning voice and member of the House Freedom Caucus. But Sanford's SC district is considered a safe Republican seat, meaning the outcome is unlikely to play a role in November's battle for control of the House. After conceding defeat Tuesday night, Sanford said he did not regret criticizing President Trump.

Arrington is a state representative.

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

Taking down an incumbent is no easy feat in American politics, but this race was really a referendum on the relative strength of the anti-Trump contingent in the Republican Party as it struggles to hold off the #MAGA cult of personality.

The most competitive choice for Democrats appears to be the battle between Clark County commissioners vying to be Nevada's first Democratic governor in two decades.

" Wonder Woman " won near-unanimous acclaim from critics and fans alike, and earned more than $800 million worldwide. This raises some questions, because Diana (aka Wonder Woman ) was clearly grieving a loss in Justice League .


Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., who clashes frequently with party leaders, responded to Trump's tweet with one of his own defending Sanford.

Another Republican who was also critical of Trump, Alabama GOP Rep. Martha Roby, is also at risk of losing re-election. He also thrusted some blame onto Trump for increasing divides within the modern Republican party and creating an even more volatile political climate.

Arrington also, in a previous Breitbart News radio interview, pledged to join the House Freedom Caucus - a group that now has no women in it but will when she arrives in Congress next year. He is better of in Argentina. No wonder Mitt Romney, who once called Trump a fake and a con man, now embraces the Trump presidency as he runs a primary race for a Senate seat in Utah.

Sanford's loss was perhaps the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday. I think his response was, 'I want to protect Article I, Article II, Article XII, ' going down the list. In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp. After Trump's win in November 2016, he appointed then-Gov.

To be sure, the president's track record of picking winners and losers in elections is not flawless.

But asking voters multiple questions on each race further drags things out.

Golden was leading late Tuesday.

And in the 3rd District, philanthropist Susie Lee is favored in the Democratic primary, while Republicans could choose Danny Tarkanian, the son of the legendary UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, who dropped his Senate bid at the urging of Trump.
