#SC1: Katie Arrington Vanquishes Mark Sanford

John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

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".

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. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Incumbency, period: Being an early backer of Trump doesn't always help save Republicans from primary challenges.

Sanford, an outspoken Trump critic, is facing a tight race against State Rep. Katie Arrington, a relative newcomer to politics. That year, voters there ousted Democrat Steven Horsford after one term and elected Republican Cresent Hardy, who was unseated in 2016 by a Democrat who in December announced a scandal-driven retirement.

McMaster was an early supporter of Trump and the president recently endorsed the governor on Twitter.

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.

Despite trying to run to Sanford's right, Arrington told Roll Call last fall she would not want to join the hard-line conservative Freedom Caucus. After attacking Sanford, the president backed Arrington.

'I'm not looking for disagreement with the administration, ' Sanford told Politico. He is better of in Argentina.

In North Dakota, Republican Representative Kevin Cramer easily won the nomination to challenge Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

When Sanford was governor of SC it was revealed he was having an extra marital affair when he claimed he was hiking the Appalachian Trail but was actually in Argentina with his lover, María Belén Chapur.

"I'm a Republican. I think our party is so fractionalized that we need to come back together", she said in an interview in North Charleston in October.

"She's a woman, so it's the year of the woman", Hostin explained.

The district, which stretches up past Green Bay along Wisconsin's northern peninsula, has traditionally been Republican, with the GOP incumbent who ran in 2014 winning with 62% of the vote.

In a state represented by moderate Republican Sen.

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.

Sanford's defeat carries national implications as Republicans scramble to field their best candidates ahead of November's mid-term elections when they face energized Democrats desperate to retake control of Congress. He will not appear on Tuesday's primary ballot since he is the only Republican candidate running for the position.

Likewise in Nevada, the race is set between incumbent Sen. She needed to win a majority of the vote to avoid a run-off.

Geren was declared the Democratic nominee by the Associated Press on Tuesday night. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.
