  • John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

It quickly became obvious that Sanford had lost his primary to state legislator Kate Arrington.

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.

The race had not yet been called for his opponent, Katie Arrington, but results that had come in by the time he stepped up to the microphone showed her at 51 percent of the vote, enough to win the GOP primary for the seat.

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.

"I am extremely disappointed that a candidate like Corey Stewart could win the Republican nomination for US Senate", former Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling tweeted.

Arrington vanquished the 58-year-old career politician by running a textbook contrast campaign - resulting in a stunning upset punctuated by a last-second endorsement from USA president Donald Trump. The onetime insurgent has made allegiance to his leadership a litmus test in many Republican races. "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote, referring to Sanford's trip to South America in 2009 to have an affair while his unknowing staff in the governor's office told reporters he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. Later, Sanford admitted he was involved in an extramarital affair in Argentina.

Trump also tweeted his endorsement of Adam Laxalt, Nevada's attorney general, just after noon Pacific time.

Kim Jong-un accepte l'invitation de Trump et lui rend la pareille
Exemple, la notion de " dénucléarisation de la péninsule coréenne " n'a pas tout à fait le même sens pour les deux parties. Pyongyang s'y est déclaré favorable (sans quoi ce sommet n'aurait jamais eu lieu) sans en préciser les formalités.

This caused Scarborough to muse that the Republican Party no longer reflects traditional conservatism, so he wondered what will happen to people who still hold onto that kind of political thinking.

With 8 percent reporting according to the Associated Press, McMaster has 44 percent of the vote, but would still face a runoff against John Warren, who has 27 percent.

Freshman members of the incoming US 114th Congress Mia Love of Utah and Barbara Comstock of Virginia huddle together in freezing temperatures after participating in a class photo on the steps of the US Capitol in Washington, November 18, 2014. The second-term House member's district leans Republican, though Democrat Hillary Clinton received more votes there than Trump did in 2016.

Sanford addressed Trump's tweet Tuesday night, saying it's "fairly unusual" for a president to weigh in as Trump did and saying he's "neither for nor against Trump", but instead bases his decisions and comments on his political values.

In North Dakota, GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer is a shoo-in to face moderate Democratic Sen. A month later, Trump and his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale pushed Danny Tarkanian out of the GOP primary against Heller, eliminating a serious threat to the nation's most vulnerable Republican incumbent. One is Sen Heidi Heitkamp's seat in North Dakota.

Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative, won her primary in Virginia's 7th Congressional District to face incumbent Rep. David Brat in the fall.

Under the system, now used in a few local jurisdictions, the election is over if one candidate wins a majority.
