How did Mark Sanford lose last night? Take a guess

How did Mark Sanford lose last night? Take a guess

She needed to win a majority of the vote to avoid a run-off.

Sanford won three terms for U.S. House in the 1990s, then two four-year terms as governor before the affair marred the end of his second term.

A second incumbent Republican congressman has lost his seat in a primary featuring intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era. On Tuesday, Virginia GOP primary voters ended up nominating a former Trump official who has defended Confederate symbols, Corey Stewart, to challenge Kaine.

Attorney General Alan Wilson will face two Republican challengers: William Herlong and Todd Atwater.

In both parties, a dominant theme was the continued emergence of female candidates.

By contrast, Trump said that Sanford "has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to [Make America Great Again]".

In a statement, Mike Biundo, a consultant for Arrington's campaign and a veteran Republican operative, said: "The president's endorsement is very important".

Trump endorsed Arrington in his tweet Tuesday on the race.

With 81 percent of the results in for the 1st District, Katie Arrington remains in the lead with 51 percent of the vote, enough to win the GOP nomination outright.

North Korea agrees to ‘complete denuclearization’ at summit, but details are few
Trump said he believes that Kim will "immediately" begin dismantling his nuclear complexes when he arrives back in Pyongyang. Unlike Trump, Obama brushed off Rodman's efforts to act as a mediator between Kim and the United States.

Arrington has aired several TV commercials pointing out Sanford's criticism of the president.

Sanford is a former governor who has never lost an election in eight races in SC, even after he admitted to an affair with a woman in Argentina. And hours before polls closed, Trump posted on Twitter supporting her. Sanford's original scandal revolved around the fact that he was cheating on his wife with an Argentinian journalist, lying to the public about it and was later caught trespassing at his former home in violation of their separation agreement.

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. Sanford spoke out against Trump as a candidate for president in 2016, and has called him culturally intolerant and criticized him for not releasing his tax returns.

Sanford also reiterates "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". "I strongly endorse Adam Laxalt for Governor of Nevada", he tweeted. Local, state and national Democrats have called on him to drop out of the race in the deep-red district and say they won't support him if he wins.

State Senator Jennifer Wexton won the Democratic nomination in the state's 10th district, which includes parts of Northern Virginia. Sens. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) are also heading for the exits largely because GOP base voters abandoned them after their attacks on the president, and Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) was just forced into a primary runoff last week because she refused to back Trump in 2016.

In the state's Second Congressional District, which includes the Hampton Roads region, Democrat Elaine Luria was the declared victor over rival Karen Mallard with 95 percent of the vote tallied.

Sanford previously represented the coastal district from 1995 to 2001.

If she holds on, Arrington would face Democrat Joe Cunningham in November. The chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, who was sacked from the Trump campaign, was the frontrunner, but his win over state Delegate Nick Freitas still upset more moderate Republicans.
