Previous GOP House Rep Loses Primary After Attack By Trump

Previous GOP House Rep Loses Primary After Attack By Trump

Polls closed at 7 p.m. on Tuesday for the SC primary election and we'll be following results as they come in. In the 4th District, vacated by retiring Rep. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.

Still, another Trump supporter who had the president's endorsement, incumbent South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, was forced into a runoff with John Warren, the founder and chief executive officer of Lima One Capital, a mortgage finance company, in a five-way Republican primary. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%. Roby said two years ago that Trump's 2005 lewd comments about women, captured on an "Access Hollywood" microphone, made him "unacceptable as a candidate for president".

In his tweet, Trump said: "Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA". He is better of in Argentina.

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

Some Republicans rushed to Sanford's defence after Trump's bruising intervention.

Sanford, an outspoken Trump critic, is facing a tight race against State Rep. Katie Arrington, a relative newcomer to politics. He'll face Senator Tim Kaine, the Democratic incumbent.

National "Republicans" took note, honing their general election attacks on Smith before all the primary ballots had even been counted.

"I am extremely disappointed that a candidate like Corey Stewart could win the Republican nomination for US Senate", former Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling tweeted.

He becomes the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year - the latest victim of intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era. "Every time I think things can't get worse they do, and there is no end in sight".

"I would start by praising the president - what he's doing in North Korea, what he's done on tax reform, what he's done with the Supreme Court. and then say, 'But here's an issue in my local area where I have some disagreement or I'd like to be something different, '" Collins said. "And he has Stewart voters to thank for it".

"She's a woman, so it's the year of the woman", Hostin explained. Smith won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday after leading the pack in fundraising, endorsements and name recognition, besting Charleston consultant Phil Noble and Florence attorney Marguerite Willis.

Democrats in two other districts they hope to retake nominated women: Abigail Spanberger in central Virginia and Elaine Luria in the district that includes Virginia Beach.

Here are results from the already-held primaries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a brief run-down of what to watch across the country Tuesday night. Jacque confirmed his concession in a phone call with CNN.

President Donald Trump tweeted his support for Arrington Tuesday afternoon. In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

On the Democratic side, one-term Rep. Jacky Rosen was projected as the victor over five long-shot candidates. "He's campaigning for me". Harry Reid. Angle, who lost to Reid in her 2010 bid for Senate, lost her primary challenge to Rep. Mark Amodei on Tuesday.

It was a long, insane night in Palmetto politics ... one that produced almost as many questions as it provided answers.

In the Seventh Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Dave Brat will face off against the victor of a Democratic primary between former Central Intelligence Agency operative Abigail Spanberger and retired Col. Dan Ward. Angus King's opponents, who ran unopposed for the Republican nomination, has online.
