Mark Sanford vs. Katie Arrington

Adjust Comment Print

Sanford, an outspoken Trump critic, is facing a tight race against State Rep. Katie Arrington, a relative newcomer to politics.

"And unlike you", he tweeted at Trump, "Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before". He is better of in Argentina. In South Carolina voters rejected incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, who was attacked for being insufficiently loyal to Trump. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Sanford has held the seat since a special election in 2013, but faces a tight challenge in the GOP primary from Arrington, a first-term S.C. House member. Rep. Kevin Cramer is expected to take home the Republican nomination Tuesday night. "I strongly endorse Adam Laxalt for Governor of Nevada", he tweeted. He will be a great Governor.

Sanford becomes just the second sitting member of Congress to lose in a primary this year. She has not called for a single-payer, government-run health insurance system, as some Democratic House primary winners in California, Nebraska and Pennsylvania have.

And in suburban Richmond's Seventh District, former Central Intelligence Agency officer Abigail Spanberger was declared the victor for the Democratic nomination, setting the stage for a fall campaign against GOP Representative David Brat. State Sen. Jennifer Wexton is the establishment preference, but veteran Dan Helmer's viral ads - one of which compares the threat Trump poses to Osama bin Laden - have gained some national attention.

State and national Republicans admitted there's virtually no chance Stewart will defeat Democratic Sen. State Representative James Smith won the Democratic nomination for governor. Alabama Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff. Her statement rings true for several primary races happening this year where Republican candidates either declare their undivided support to the president or risk losing elections.

Geren was declared the Democratic nominee by the Associated Press on Tuesday night.

Even though Sony just delivered a nine-minute gameplay trailer for Ghost of Tsushima , there's still a lot we don't know about it. An achingly attractive trailer was debuted on the Sony stage last night, showing off the new title set in feudal Japan.


In a big Virginia race, Republican Corey Stewart - known for his ardent defense of Confederate symbolism - won the Republican primary to face Democratic Sen. "We will see if he can flip U.S. Senate races in red states this fall". None of the three Senate candidates appears to match that region.

In the coming weeks, Arrington plans to campaign in communities that "have not heard the Republican message".

On the Democratic side, one-term Rep. Jacky Rosen was projected as the victor over five long-shot candidates. In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

As lieutenant governor, McMaster was the nation's first statewide elected official to back Trump ahead of South Carolina's early presidential primary. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff. Smith also owes South Carolinians answers following reports that he potentially engaged in prohibited activity by running illegal schemes with taxpayer dollars.

In Nevada, the race to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval features primaries in both parties. Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Christina Giunchigliani are the front-runners among Democrats.

Arrington, a businesswoman with ties to the military, was considered an underdog when she initially launched her first race for Congress past year.

First they must settle a seven-way primary field led by Attorney General Janet Mills and former state House Speaker Mark Eves.
