Previous GOP House Rep Loses Primary After Attack By Trump

  • John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

Nevada's Senate primary became much less interesting when businessman Danny Tarkanian was persuaded by Trump to end his challenge to Republican incumbent Sen. But Stewart has gotten one step closer to holding statewide office, by narrowly beating out state delegate Nick Freitas in Tuesday's race.

Democrat Jennifer Wexton won a six-way primary race and will take on Republican Barbara Comstock, one of the Democrats' top targets in their push to pick up the 23 seats they need to claim a majority in the House.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake was driven into retirement. "This keeps with his policy to support all GOP incumbents running for re-election".

A few hours before polls closed, Trump tweeted that Sanford was "nothing but trouble" and "very unhelpful to me".

"And unlike you", he tweeted at Trump, "Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before". He is better of in Argentina.

The President announced his last-minute endorsement of Arrington as the polls neared closing on Tuesday, and also criticized Sanford, who has served the state's First Congressional District in the House of Representatives since 2013. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. That refers to 2009, when Sanford's aides said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail while he actually visited a woman with whom he was having an affair in Argentina.

Stewart is an outspoken defender of Confederate symbolism.

State and national Republicans admitted there's virtually no chance Stewart will defeat Democratic Sen.

Republicans expressed concern on Tuesday that Stewart's nomination will hurt GOP candidates down ballot.

Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant has 8 percent of the early vote, with former Lt. Gov. Yancey McGill trailing with 2 percent. Just today, when NYT reporter Alan Blinder asked Sanford if he was confident in the primary, the congressman reportedly replied, "I think confident is too strong a word".

"Why don't we just start to say it has devolved into a cult?"

Arrington, a businesswoman with ties to the military, was considered an underdog when she initially launched her first race for Congress past year.

"On Tuesday, three women won Democratic primaries", Hostin began as McCain tried to interject. But in the South Carolina GOP primary race for governor, the president's backing was not enough; that race is headed to a runoff in two weeks. Jacque confirmed his concession in a phone call with CNN.

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. In response, Sanford has spent more than $380,000 on advertising in his district, an unusual move for a congressman known to despise spending money.

In conceding the race, Sanford said he was comfortable with the positions he took on Trump.

The GOP nominee faces him in November.

He said Tuesday he planned to wage a "vicious" campaign against Kaine. 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.

But asking voters multiple questions on each race further drags things out.

Democratic State Sen. Jennifer Wexton was the clear victor in a six-way primary in Virginia's 10th District, and will challenge Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock.
