How President Trump Is Changing The Republican Party

"He's one of the most principled, consistent, and conservative members of Congress I've ever known", Sanford's colleague from Michigan, Representative Justin Amash, quickly fired back at Trump on Twitter.

SC voters are getting their chance to weigh in as voting began Tuesday for the state's primary elections, with a hotly contested governor's race at the top of the ticket. His office said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail but he was actually visiting his mistress in Argentina.

In Virginia, several Democrats - especially women - won congressional primaries.

And in Virginia's 10th Congressional District, state Sen.

"Bless his heart, but it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time", Arrington says in the ad.

It seems voters agreed with Arrington as she took a significant victory away from the career politician, eking out a victory with a margin of about 3,000 votes out of around 65,000 total votes cast. Roby said two years ago that Trump's 2005 lewd comments about women, captured on an "Access Hollywood" microphone, made him "unacceptable as a candidate for president".

The upset of Sanford, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was the latest sign of Trump's firm grip on the Republican Party.

The congressman, former governor and one-time presidential aspirant was trailing a little-known state lawmaker who slammed him for his repeated criticism of President Trump, the latest sign that the most risky thing to do in the modern GOP is dare to take on the president.

Another theory is that Trump has an ongoing beef with Michael Biundo, one of the operatives hired by Arrington to help run her insurgent campaign.

In Maine's 2nd District, incumbent Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin's opponent is yet to be officially called but is likely going to be Jared Golden, who had 50 percent of the vote Tuesday night with 67 percent of precincts reporting.

Just hours before the polls closed in South Carolina, Trump tweeted, "Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA".

This is the first race Sanford lost over his 25 years in politics.

Kate Marshall also won the Democratic primary for Nevada's lieutenant governor, and fellow Democrats Susie Lee (third district), Clint Koble (second district) and incumbent Dina Titus (first district) won congressional primaries.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump tweeted, adding, "He is better off in Argentina".

U.S. Rep. Mark Sandford (R-S.C.) arrives at a House Republican Conference meeting on Capitol Hill on September 28, 2013. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. McMaster received the most votes of the four Republicans running, but will face Greenville businessman John Warren in a second contest June 26.

Though Wexton favors a ban on the sale of assault weapons, she defied what has been the tendency in some swing districts to nominate Democrats with liberal profiles on other key issues.

Longtime state Rep. James Smith has won the Democratic nomination in South Carolina's gubernatorial race.

On the Democratic side, voters also face a choice between political experience and newcomer perspective. "It's time for a true citizen legislator, someone who comes from the private sector, who will stand with the people, who believes in term limits, who will go to Washington to serve her constituents and then, come home".
