McMaster and Warren in GOP runoff for governor

McMaster and Warren in GOP runoff for governor

Rep. Mark Sanford, one of President Donald Trump's sharpest Republican critics, was ousted by a primary challenger on Tuesday after Trump waged an extraordinary last-minute effort to defeat him. Arrington has repeatedly called Sanford a "Never Trumper", due to the incumbent's criticisms of the president.

He said he does not regret being critical of Trump.

One of her ads got personal too, saying "it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time". In a February 2017 Politico piece, he said Trump has "fanned the flames of intolerance". "He is better off in Argentina".

Republican Rep. Mark Sanford conceded his re-election race to state Rep. Katie Arrington, who ran as a Trump ally. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Smith has led the pack in fundraising, but recent polling in the race showed many voters had yet to make up their minds. The iconoclastic congressman, a fiscally conservative purist and member of the House Freedom Caucus, had mocked Trump for his lack of a grasp of the U.S. Constitution late in the GOP primary and demanded late in the presidential race that Trump release his tax returns.

Trump went after Sanford on Twitter Tuesday afternoon, as voters continued to go to the polls, calling him "very unhelpful".

With 65 percent reporting, first-term state Rep. Katie Arrington is on the verge of unseating a S.C. political fixture for the past 25 years.

When I woke up this morning, I flipped on Morning Joe only to hear the results of the South Carolina GOP primary for the 1st Congressional District. After serving three terms in the House, he later served as governor for eight years, but his tenure was marred by his disappearance for several days in 2009.

Republicans will return to the polls in two weeks for a runoff between incumbent Henry McMaster and political newcomer John Warren.

Primary contests for Nevada's other swing district, the 4th Congressional District, are expected to produce a November rematch of two former congressmen.Former Rep. Steven Horsford is leading a six-way Democratic primary for his former seat. The race became a referendum on Trump's popularity - a firestorm stoked by Trump himself - particularly in the final hours of the race in the Lowcountry district.

Sanford was not the only establishment Republican to face challenges Tuesday.

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.

In another big Virginia race, Republican Corey Stewart - once a state chairman to Trump's presidential campaign who was sacked for protesting the Republican National Committee - won the Republican primary to face Democratic Sen. 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.

One of those races in Nye County pits incumbent Assembly member James Oscarson of Pahrump against Nevada's most famous pimp, Dennis Hof. One is Sen Heidi Heitkamp's seat in North Dakota. He will not appear on Tuesday's primary ballot since he is the only Republican candidate running for the position.

SC is an open primary state, meaning you don't have to be a registered member of a party to vote in it's primary.

In Nevada, the race to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval features primaries in both parties.
