Sanford upset in GOP primary

John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

Sanford told his supporters shortly before 11 p.m. he was likely to lose his bid for re-election Tuesday night. This race won't have a victor or loser until November, but it's worth noting that Comstock (R-Va.) ceded almost 40 percent of the vote to a little-known GOP primary challenger on Tuesday.

Nevada voters were deciding a competitive Democratic primary race for governor Tuesday, a contest that became the state's most closely watched after President Trump helped clear a path to the GOP nomination for vulnerable Sen. The refers to 2009, when Sanford's aides said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail while he actually visited a woman with whom he was having an affair in Argentina. For Trump, it was payback for Sanford's often blunt criticism of his policies and rhetoric. Joe then declared that Sanford's loss was because he "said a couple of bad things about Donald Trump" and this was proof that the Republican Party is now a "Trumpist cult".

Sanford also reiterates "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". "I look forward to working together with him to drain the swamp and continue making America great again".

Trump himself tweeted an attack against Sanford late in the day, and endorsed Arrington in the 11th hour.

Senate Republicans' hopes in Virginia: Sen.

"They keep running Alabama candidates and Alabama campaigns, and they've just quit communicating with the northern Virginia suburbs", former GOP Rep. Tom Davis told CNN when asked about Virginia Republicans' struggles in recent elections.

Some of the other notable races were taking place in Virginia, where Democrats are seeking to capture some of the 23 Republican seats they would need to reclaim the majority in the U.S. House.

Even though Sanford maintained a conservative track record during his congressional career, the representative was torpedoed by Trump just hours before the election yesterday.

Republicans in Virginia are picking between Corey Stewart, who has built his public profile on defending Confederate monuments, state delegate Nick Freitas, the favorite of the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity and a Rand Paul ally, and minister E.W. Jackson, who has taken a series of hardline conservative positions on social issues. "Primary voters in the Republican Party have devolved into a Trumpist cult".

The two primaries were sleepy Tuesday, but will be among the nation's most important battlegrounds in November.

Four decades in S.C. politics, 16 months in the governor's office and an endorsement from the president were not enough for Gov. Henry McMaster to avoid a runoff in the Republican governor's race primary.

The big race in ME in November will be for governor, where Democrats see an opportunity to flip a Republican seat held by outgoing Gov. Paul LePage.

The GOP nominee faces him in November.
