  • John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

In a sign of President Trump's influence over GOP voters, frequent Trump critic Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) on Tuesday lost his Republican primary to state Rep. Katie Arrington, who ran as a Trump ally.

That's the lesson many Republicans are drawing from Rep. Mark Sanford's surprise defeat Tuesday in his primary election in SC.

While Sanford's defiance of Trump cost him, Virginia congresswoman Barbara Comstock handily won her primary against a more conservative candidate who accused her of being a "Never Trumper".

The district includes portions of Beaufort, Colleton, Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties and the election marks Sanford's first contest with President Donald Trump in office.

That was a reference to Sanford's surprise disappearance from the state as governor, which he later revealed was to further his affair with an Argentine woman.

But Trump saved his first two tweets while back in the National Capital District's airspace for the now-departing SC congressman - and his opposition of Sanford exposed a rare chasm between himself and conservative Republicans. Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda.

Sanford was critical of Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, and has found himself on opposite sides with the president since. In Alabama, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby is in a July 17 runoff against former congressman Bobby Bright.

He tweeted again Wednesday mornings, saying that his political representatives thought Sanford would "easily win". "We are the party of President Donald J. Trump", Arrington declared in her victory speech.

"There's a temptation, given the American public's frustration with the political system, .to throw the baby out with the bathwater, and 'let's discard all these institutions that have served us incredibly well for 200+ years, '" Sanford said. Sanford has just conceded.

"It doesn't make me nervous, but it probably gives pause to some who want to openly criticize the president", he said.

A one-time state chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, Stewart almost won the 2017 Republican nomination for governor, despite being heavily outspent. She said in 2016 she couldn't support Trump for president after tape emerged of him boasting in 2005 about groping women's genitals. He is better of in Argentina. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Nevada's Senate primary became much less interesting when businessman Danny Tarkanian was persuaded by Trump to end his challenge to Republican incumbent Sen. Maine, Nevada, and North Dakota also held primaries.

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".

"Don't underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!" the president added. Dimitri Cherny, as well as Democrats Joe Cunningham and Toby Smith, are also running. Mark Sanford and lashing out at Democratic Sen. He says he plans a "vicious" general election campaign against Kaine, who battled Trump as Hillary Clinton's vice-presidential candidate and has a huge fundraising advantage.

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.
