Winners and Losers: Trump is the big victor in Tuesday's primaries

Winners and Losers: Trump is the big victor in Tuesday's primaries

She branded Sanford as a "Never Trump" Republican in name only who nearly reflexively disagrees with the president.

On Tuesday, five states - Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia - will vote to determine party nominees ahead of November's midterm elections.

He was the top aide to Trump's presidential campaign in Virginia in 2016, but was sacked for staging an unauthorized protest of the Republican National Committee. Trump hit Sanford for the affair, too. The onetime insurgent has made allegiance to his leadership a litmus test in many Republican races. In a February 2017 Politico piece, he said Trump has "fanned the flames of intolerance".

Sanford told aides in 2009 that he was away "hiking the Appalachian Trail" when he was actually in Argentina visiting Maria Belen Chapur, a television reporter who he would later call his "soul mate". He is better off in Argentina.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said.

A record number of Democratic women have filed to run for Congress since President Donald Trump stepped into the White House, with many telling CNN that they chose to run in response to Trump's presidency. "And unlike you, Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before".

Sanford is the second Republican member of Congress to lose in a nominating contest this year, following Robert Pittenger's loss in North Carolina last month.

After declaring victory Tuesday, Arrington asked Republicans to come together.

Comstock, a moderate Republican who easily beat back a challenge from conservative Shak Hill, is one of the Democrats' top targets in November. It's Democrats' third big special election win in Wisconsin this year alone, and their 43rd state legislative seat they've flipped in the Trump era.

Winners and Losers: Trump is the big victor in Tuesday's primaries

Trump explained his decision for weighing in, tweeting early Wednesday that he "felt that Katie was such a good candidate, and Sanford was so bad, I had to give it a shot".

She will face Democratic challenger Joe Cunningham in the heavily Republican district this November.

Over more than two decades, SC voters forgave U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford for his quirkiness, his infidelity and his lies.

North Dakota Republicans chose Rep. Kevin Cramer to challenge vulnerable Democratic Sen.

It is fitting, perhaps, that the Republican Party's turn towards Trump's economic nationalism has coincided with Johnson departing the party to become a Libertarian and Sanford being tossed from its ranks.

Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, the only Republican seeking re-election in a state that Hillary Clinton carried in 2016, and Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen are expected to sail through their primaries, and already have begun focusing their criticism on each other in what is expected to be among the most competitive Senate races this year.

ME voters were the nation's first to use a new voting system in a statewide election letting them rank candidates by preference rather than choosing just one.

Democrats need to gain 23 seats to win the majority in the House. Maine Governor Paul LePage is reportedly considering not certifying the results. "I think I'll end up losing this election", he said.
