Sanford upset in GOP primary

Sanford upset in GOP primary

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

The most serious primary challenge to an incumbent member of Nevada's congressional delegation is conservative activist Sharron Angle's bid for Nevada's 2nd Congressional District.

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", the president tweeted, using the initials for his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again".

Throughout his political career, Sanford has played up his outsider credentials - both in the U.S. 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 call pork spending.

McMaster also received an the President's endorsement...who says the governor "is doing a fantastic job". And in Virginia, a vulnerable Republican congresswoman survived a primary challenge, despite her past criticism of the president.

"It is time to turn the page on the Sanford era", Arrington told Fox News earlier this week.

In a statement, Mike Biundo, a consultant for Arrington's campaign and a veteran Republican operative, said: "The president's endorsement is very important".

'I'm not looking for disagreement with the administration, ' Sanford told Politico.

Congressman Mark Sanford is best remembered nationally for a highly public extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina several years ago. In announcing his campaign last summer, Cunningham became one of the first Democratic candidates to come out against Nancy Pelosi for speaker should the party take back the House. "I know a lot of people here in South Carolina, particularly of my age demographic-are exhausted of what they view as a good old boys club", said Emory Roberts, Political Director, South Carolina Young Republicans. Harry Reid, and Chris Giunchigliani, who was endorsed by Hillary Clinton and is a woman, which has proven to be a decisive advantage in earlier Democratic contests this year. Trump has treated Heitkamp better than other red-state Democratic senators, as she has crossed party lines to vote for some of his policies and nominees.

The district could go to a runoff thanks to ex-Democrat Dimitri Cherny, who has 3 percent of the vote.

Sanford has also split with own party, perhaps most notably in this coastal district, on human contributions to climate change.

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

Republicans will return to the polls in two weeks for a runoff between incumbent Henry McMaster and political newcomer John Warren.

Martin Barry, an American party candidate who is seeking the position of governor, will appear on November's general election ballot.

Stewart surprised many by almost winning last year's Republican nomination for governor.

In Nevada, Democrats are set to nominate Rep. Jacky Rosen to take on Republican Sen.

"So she won 'cause it's just about gender?"

If Democrats have any shot of winning control of the Senate, they'll need to successfully defend Sen.

Freshman members of the incoming US 114th Congress Mia Love of Utah and Barbara Comstock of Virginia huddle together in freezing temperatures after participating in a class photo on the steps of the US Capitol in Washington, November 18, 2014. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.
