Now, Sanford is speaking about Trump, saying in a Meet the Press interview that will air on Sunday that "there are no seeming consequences to the president and lies".

In Virginia's 10th Congressional District - a top pickup opportunity for Democrats in the fall - a female won a crowded Democratic primary and will face off against GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock, who also won her race. His office said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail but he was actually visiting his mistress in Argentina.

Democrats in two other districts they hope to retake nominated women: Abigail Spanberger in central Virginia and Elaine Luria in the district that includes Virginia Beach.

And in the 4th district GOP contest, third-party ads attacked state Sen.

"One second", Hostin said to McCain. Wednesday, Trump tweet again and indicated he might need to take some credit for Arrington's win. As lieutenant governor, McMaster was the nation's first statewide elected official to back Trump ahead of South Carolina's early presidential primary.

He said he was not prepared for the global media attention on his family following his daughter's engagement to a British royal. He explained that it was meant to be "a way of improving my look", adding: "Obviously that all went to hell".

In South Carolina, former governor Mark Sanford, who rehabilitated his image after a freaky scandal some years to get elected to Congress, was a surprise loser in his primary after President Trump came out against him.

Her unexpected victory now makes Arrington the poster child for the pro-Trump wing of the Republican Party's 2018 takeover.

Sanford said Tuesday night that he was "neither for nor against Trump" but maintained that he bases his decisions and comments on his political values.

In the GOP governor's primary, Trump reiterated his "full endorsement" of McMaster on Twitter over the weekend, praising the longtime Republican figure in the state for being "with me from the beginning".

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. In Virginia, a Republican known for his ardent defense of Confederate symbolism, Corey Stewart, won the Republican primary to face Democratic Sen.

Today, three hours before the polls closed, President Trump came out against Sanford, calling him "nothing but trouble". Twisting the knife, Trump stated that Sanford "is better off in Argentina". She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. Three Democrats seek their party's nomination. Governor Henry McMaster was the top vote-getter in the Republican primary, but did not get the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff.

Local, state and national Democrats have called on him to drop out of the race in the deep-red district and say they won't support him if he wins.
