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

Hours before polls closed, President Donald Trump posted on his official Twitter account that Sanford was very unhelpful to him and was better off in Argentina.

State Rep. Katie Arrington hugs supporters as she defeated Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) on Tuesday in a GOP primary. The incumbent, a frequent critic of the president, lost to state legislator Katie Arrington, who vowed to be more supportive of Trump if elected to the House in November.

Scarborough said the outgoing lawmaker was hailed as a staunch conservative by the Freedom Caucus, but GOP primary voters followed Trump's lead by voting Sanford out. "He is better off in Argentina", Trump tweeted. "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes". But Arrington made an issue of his criticism of the president, calling him a "Never Trumper".

The race was perhaps the most closely watched matchup in Tuesday's slate of primaries, which includes Virginia, Nevada and North Dakota choosing their Senate candidates and ME for the first time trying - and voting on whether to keep - a new voting system in which voters rank their preferences, rather than only selecting one.

Voters also cast ballots in Maine, Nevada and North Dakota, as the field for the mid-term elections begins to take shape.

Nevada's Senate primary became much less interesting when businessman Danny Tarkanian was persuaded by Trump to end his challenge to Republican incumbent Sen. He was hardly a lock to win to begin with.

U.S. Rep. Tom Rice faces a Republican challenger along with Sanford.

In a state represented by moderate Republican Sen.

On Tuesday, five states - Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia - will vote to determine party nominees ahead of November's midterm elections. Republican incumbent Rep. Bruce Poliquin will attempt to defend his seat against the victor of a three-person Democratic primary featuring state Rep. Jared Golden, bookseller Craig Olson and nonprofit director Lucas St. Clair. In the 4th District, vacated by retiring Rep. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.

As voters made their primary choices in five states, SC wasn't the only place where Republicans favored conservatives who are seen as closely tied to Trump and his agenda.

The Senate landscape is becoming more settled Tuesday night as well. None of the three Senate candidates appears to match that region. Ted Cruz during the 2016 election campaign.

Throughout his political career, Sanford has played up his outsider credentials - both in the US House, where he supported a box to check on federal tax returns to put $3 toward the national debt, and as governor, bringing a pair of squealing pigs to the state House and Senate chamber to protest what he called pork spending.

In most states voting Tuesday night, the governor races will get the most local attention. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff. Jennifer Wexton won the Democratic nomination to unseat Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock, who also overcame a primary challenge.

The president congratulated last week for the Republican Party's showing in Tuesday's California primaries. Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Christina Giunchigliani are the front-runners among Democrats. He also supported Nevada Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt. In the years after Ron Paul's 2008 dark horse presidential run, he and then-governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson (along with, of course, Rand Paul) were often identified as the heirs apparent to the libertarian wing of the GOP.
