Though it's unclear how much impact the president's last-minute endorsement made in the final stretch of the primary election, Sanford saidTrump'stweet hurt him, adding that the president's "if you offend me, I'm coming back to get you"-attitude was "a little outside the norm".
The results come after Arrington repeatedly attacked Sanford for opposing Trump. His public confession came after Sanford disappeared from the governor's office, and a spokesman said he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail", when he was actually visiting his mistress. Afterwards, in 2013, he somehow won a special election for the first district seat, filling the vacancy left when Tim Scott was appointed to the Senate.
Over more than two decades, SC voters forgave U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford for his quirkiness, his infidelity and his lies. In Tuesday's primary, he lost to state Representative Katie Arrington, who had campaigned against Sanford by branding him a "Never Trumper".

As Arrington told her cheering supporters, "We are the party of Donald J. Trump". If no one gets a majority after the polls close Tuesday night, then there is a runoff in two weeks. Vying to defeat her in November are four Democrats who are facing off Tuesday - state Sen.
"Yes, of course it's his party", said Doug Heye, a former top House GOP leadership aide who is now a party strategist. Earlier this year at the party convention, journalist Leslie Cockburn won the nomination in Virginia's 5th Congressional District. He also voted against a border wall proposal, called Trump's proposed tariffs on aluminum and steel "an experiment with stupidity" and was unrelenting in calling for Trump to release his tax returns. As voters were heading to the polls Tuesday, the president took a shot at the incumbent congressman.
To be sure, the president's track record of picking winners and losers in elections is not flawless.
While fealty to the Republican president may be a requirement to win low-turnout Republican primaries dominated by conservative activists, it could prove a tougher sell against energized anti-Trump Democratic forces in midterm elections this fall.
