SC Rep. Sanford predicts defeat; 4 other states vote

No telling how Trump finally got word that Sanford was facing some stiff primary opposition today with 168 minutes before the polls close, but Trump's endorsement could definitely have come at a better time.

"Now, we're just in a very weird place that I've never seen before", Sanford said.

Arrington defeated Sanford, who often clashed with Trump, 51 percent to 47 percent, after the president tweeted he was "nothing but trouble".

But Arrington, who works for a defense contractor, has exploited that trait, pointing out Sanford's call for Trump to release his tax returns, his vote against Trump's border wall proposal, and his calling proposed tariffs on alumni and steel "an experiment with stupidity". Sanford, who was married, fell in love with an Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, and went to visit her after telling his staff that he would be "hiking the Appalachian trail". The Republican also served two terms as the governor of SC.

But Sanford has also attacked Trump on the Stormy Daniels episode, siding with the fake news media over the president of hiss own party, and has been a thorn in the side of the president's legislative agenda in addition to his frequent public criticisms.

Arrington has 52 percent of the vote in the GOP primary in the state's 1st congressional district, leading incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford who has just 45 percent, according to the Associated Press. Marco Rubio during the 2016 SC primary campaign, and later praised 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for a scathing rebuke of Trump, whom Romney called "a phony, a fraud".

The upset of Sanford, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was the latest sign of Trump's firm grip on the Republican Party.


Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years. That was a snarky reference to Sanford's adulterous affair when he was governor, in 2009, from a president who has been identified as an alleged adulterer. In Alabama, US Rep. Martha Roby is in a July 17 runoff against former congressman Bobby Bright. He also thrusted some blame onto Trump for increasing divides within the modern Republican party and creating an even more volatile political climate. Her unexpected victory now makes Arrington the poster child for the pro-Trump wing of the Republican Party's 2018 takeover.

He also slammed Sanford as being 'better off 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.

Cramer is in his third term representing North Dakota's at-large congressional district, giving him strong name recognition and a track record of being elected to statewide office.

The South Carolina race highlighted primary voting in five states on Tuesday. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%.

He said lawmakers would be wise to keep their differences with the president low-key and within the range of policy, not personality, so as not to alienate Republican primary voters protective of the commander in chief. He can win. Even Fake News CNN said the Trump impact was really big, much bigger than they ever thought possible.

Sanford would be the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.
