SC primary voters like Trump's tax cuts, medical marijuana

Candidates running for Governor

Sanford had represented the Charleston district on and off for six terms, with eight years in the Governor's Mansion in between.

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.

Corey Stewart, the bombastic conservative who built his public image on championing the Confederate flag and monuments like Charlottesville's Robert E. Lee statue and has appeared with white nationalists, won the Republican Senate nomination.

Democratic State Sen. Jennifer Wexton was the clear victor in a six-way primary in Virginia's 10th District, and will challenge Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock.

Within minutes, the Arrington campaign was also blasting out a robocall touting Trump's endorsement and encouraging voters to "get out and vote, even in the rain".

Henry McMaster, an early supporter of President Donald Trump, was forced into a runoff for the Republican gubernatorial nomination Tuesday.

President Donald Trump is crediting his Election-Day tweet in part for the defeat of a South Carolina Republican congressman who has been critical of his administration.

Smith will take on either McMaster or Warren in the race for governor.

He also slammed Sanford as being 'better off in Argentina'.

Newsweek reached out to both Mark Sanford and Katie Arrington's campaign team for comment but has not received a response.

De Gea demands public apology from Spanish PM
Sanchez met the Spain team last week, when he attempted to ease the tension by apologising in person to De Gea . It's very important to have a good World Cup and I hope we can go far and win - that would be wonderful .

He's been known as South Carolina's political comeback kid, but his luck just ran out.

The Argentina reference was a reminder of the sex scandal that made Sanford a national sensation in 2009.

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", the president tweeted, using the initials for his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again". "He was one of only five Republicans who refused to support our President and voted against Trump's border wall". Trump has treated Heitkamp better than other red-state Democratic senators, as she has crossed party lines to vote for some of his policies and nominees.

The President announced his last-minute endorsement of Arrington as the polls neared closing on Tuesday, and also criticized Sanford, who has served the state's First Congressional District in the House of Representatives since 2013.

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

In the past, Sanford said the president should "just shut up" and "quit responding" to critics and focus on the issues at hand. In his concession, Sanford, the state's former governor, said, "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president".

The Post and Courier reports Sanford has conceded the race. Arrington started running TV ads about the same time and put 1,255 spots on the air at an estimated cost of $172,750.

In Virginia, all races that weren't uncontested except one in the Democratic primaries went to female candidates, and all four Democratic primaries in competitive districts went to women.

Democratic State Sen. Jennifer Wexton was the clear victor in a six-way primary in Virginia's 10th District, and will challenge Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock.
