Mark Sanford, Fromer SC Governor, Loses Seat in U.S. House

Runoff for SC GOP gubernatorial race; Rep. Smith wins Dem primary Gov. Henry McMaster headed to runoff, Rep. James Smith wins nomination from Democrats, big

Arrington's campaign was based on the premise that Sanford - who has criticized Trump's style and questioned his knowledge - is insufficiently supportive of the President.

President Donald Trump is trumpeting the defeat of a South Carolina Republican congressman who has been critical of his administration.

He was the top aide to Trump's presidential campaign in Virginia in 2016, but was sacked for staging an unauthorized protest of the Republican National Committee.

The Republican primary vote is a test for the heft of the endorsement of President Donald Trump, who is backing Gov. Henry McMaster.

Republican Rep. Mark Sanford became the latest proof point that fealty to Trump - much more than purity on the issues - matters most in GOP politics.

Congressman Mark Sanford is best remembered nationally for a highly public extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina several years ago.

But Arrington, who works for a defense contractor, has been able to exploit 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 aluminum and steel "an experiment with stupidity".

"They'll say it as if it's an evil word-like "you're a communist" or something", Sanford said in 2009 when he was labeled a "libertarian" by Sen. Mark Sanford, who has held the seat since 2013, trails with 46 percent of the vote.

Freshman members of the incoming US 114th Congress Mia Love of Utah and Barbara Comstock of Virginia huddle together in freezing temperatures after participating in a class photo on the steps of the US Capitol in Washington, November 18, 2014. He's one of the most principled, consistent, and conservative members of Congress I've ever known. The president himself weighed in by stoking memories of the affair, tweeting that Sanford was "better off in Argentina".

In the state's U.S. Senate contest, conservative activist Stewart will face a tough general election campaign against Kaine, a former governor and Clinton's running mate in 2016, who was unopposed in the Democratic primary.

In North Dakota, GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer is a shoo-in to face moderate Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, April 7, 2018.

Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock in northern Virginia's 10th District will face the victor of a six-way Democratic primary.

ME voters were the nation's first to use a new voting system in a statewide election letting them rank candidates by preference rather than choosing just one.

Two longtime Democratic voters in Sparks, both 67, parted ways on the race.Medical technician Pamela Jones said she voted for Sisolak because he seemed more honest. But if not, the lowest vote-getter is eliminated, with their votes reallocated until one contender gains a majority. In the years after Ron Paul's 2008 dark horse presidential run, he and then-governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson (along with, of course, Rand Paul) were often identified as the heirs apparent to the libertarian wing of the GOP.
