Sanford acknowledges expected loss to challenger Arrington in 1st congressional district race

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

Trailing in the Republican congressional primary to an opponent supported in last-minute tweets by President Donald Trump, US Rep. Mark Sanford told supporters in SC on Tuesday night: "I'm going to lose this race".

Before the final results were even tallied, Sanford told supporters, "I've always been a realist and at this point, based on the numbers I see, I think that I will end up losing this election".

Arrington is running against incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford, who has never lost a race in his political career.

Trump's power among Republicans in nominating primaries was evident when Sanford lost just hours after Trump issued a tweet criticizing him and endorsing his opponent.

In any event, the fact that Sanford has at times been at odds with Trump is what made Arrington such a strong challenger in the first place.

As governor in 2009, Sanford famously disclosed that he had been carrying on an extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina.

Trump launched a pointedly personal attack on Sanford just hours before polls closed.

Shortly after the president's Tuesday tweet, senior conservative GOP members rallied around Sanford. In the 4th District, vacated by retiring Rep. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.

The president himself weighed in by stoking memories of the affair, tweeting that Sanford was "better off in Argentina".

Sanford was not the only sitting member to receive the Trump Twitter treatment as the head of the Republican Party - clearly on a high from his historic meeting with the North Korean leader - returned to the White House.

The Post and Courier reports Sanford has conceded the race.

He was sacked from the Trump campaign after staging an unsanctioned protest at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee, which Stewart said wasn't sufficiently loyal to Trump during the presidential campaign. The chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, who was sacked from the Trump campaign, was the frontrunner, but his win over state Delegate Nick Freitas still upset more moderate Republicans. She said in 2016 she couldn't support Trump for president after tape emerged of him boasting in 2005 about groping women's genitals. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Their bigger worry, though, is how Stewart's presence on the ballot could lead Republican voters to stay at home, hurting the party in several competitive House races.

In Sanford, he chose a well-known former governor, who among other criticisms held him partly responsible for a shooting at a congressional baseball practice by stoking national tensions. He is better of in Argentina. She needed to win a majority of the vote to avoid a run-off.

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.

State coordinators who I spoke to a few minutes ago say they expected it to be a little more competitive at the top of the ticket. Democratic women came out on top in two other Virginia congressional races that the party is closely watching.

Incumbent McMaster is seeking to be elected to remain in office after taking Nikki Haley's position in 2017 when she was appointed by Pres. Donald Trump to serve as UN Ambassador.
