Rep. Sanford Says 'I'm Going to Lose This Race'

Runoff for SC GOP gubernatorial race; Rep. Smith wins Dem primary

"Based on the number I see, I think that I'll end up losing this election", he said.

In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year - the latest victim of intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era.

In more than two decades of politics and in spite of one of the great sex scandals in political history, Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) had never lost an election.

Sanford's defeat carries national implications as Republicans scramble to field their best candidates ahead of November's mid-term elections when they face energized Democrats desperate to retake control of Congress.

Though he waited until a few hours before the polls closed to issue his endorsements, President Trump was a big victor in Tuesday's primary races.

McMaster was an early supporter of President Donald Trump, and he was the top vote-getter in Tuesday's primary. In Alabama, Rep. Martha Roby has been forced into a July runoff, because Republicans there are still furious that she called on Trump to quit the 2016 campaign after the release of a video in which he bragged about sexual assault.

In the Second Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Taylor will face the victor of the Democratic primary between former U.S. Navy commander Elaine Luria and schoolteacher Karen Mallard.

Sanford conceded to state Rep. Katie Arrington after 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, telling the crowd that he is a "realist".

The cult of President Donald Trump.

"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 told reporters on Capitol Hill. GOP Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the group's founding chairman, also expressed his support for Sanford, saying, "I hope he wins".

But Trump's preference for populist candidates like Corey Stewart, the Confederate-statue-supporting Republican who won the GOP nomination for Senate in Virginia on Tuesday, increasingly seems to be remaking the GOP, if not Congress, in his image.

"A lot of Republicans who hid behind Trump's toga in the primary are going to pay a price in November", said veteran Republican consultant Rich Galen, a former aide to ex-U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich. "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote.

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

House Republicans otherwise were upbeat Wednesday after primary elections in several states as they met behind closed doors to discuss the coming midterms.

The South Carolina congressman's loss in Tuesday's primary was the most stunning outcome on a day that voters in Virginia, Maine, Nevada and North Dakota also went to the polls. The president's tweet also calls Virginia's Democratic Sen. He says candidates realized this time around they needed to look outside of the major cities to secure those votes.

Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years.

Yes, that reference to Argentina is the thrice-wedded president (who may have had an affair with a porn star) accusing Sanford of being bad at marriage, apparently without a hint of irony.
