Ousted GOP Rep. Mark Sanford: Trump 'lies' are harmful to Republicans

This was Sanford's second stint serving as representative of South Carolina's 1st District.

In Nevada, Trump brokered a deal in which incumbent Dean Heller got the nod for the Republican Senate nomination and his challenger Danny Tarkanian agreed to run for a House seat instead.

That's part of a larger dynamic playing out in congressional races across the country, Sanford said.

Four other states held primaries.

In Maine, businessman Shawn Moody won the GOP gubernatorial primary with 56% of all votes, while State Attorney General Janet Mills took the Democratic primary after beating out six opponents.

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

Supporters of the system say it ensures the victor receives the majority of the vote and is more Democratic, while critics anxious it would be confusing and could delay results.

On the Democratic side, the race was much closer with Janet Mills receiving 32.6 percent and Adam Cote with 28.1 percent.

On Tuesday night, Sanford called Trump's decision to weigh in on the race "fairly unusual", but nevertheless remained steadfast that he is "neither for nor against Trump". The final result could take several days to determine.

Palermo Mayor Leoluca Orlando said Salvini was "violating worldwide law which makes saving lives a priority". Malta and Italy thanked Spain for stepping up, but maintained their dispute over who was responsible.

Voters in ME will be the first in the nation to use the system in a statewide election that lets voters rank candidates by preference rather than choosing just one.

Another district that will see runoff - or two runoffs: the Democratic and Republican races to replace retiring Rep. Trey Gowdy in the 4th District. Nevada, North Dakota, Maine and Virginia also chose candidates for the midterm election on November 6, when Democrats hope to capture a majority of the U.S. Congress. Both men ran uncontested. Had Arrington missed this threshold, she would have had to go up against Sanford again on June 26. Jennifer Wexton won the Democratic nomination to unseat Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock, who also overcame a primary challenge.

Did Trump's endorsement swing the race to Arrington?

Sanford's traditionally red district is on Democrats' radar for November because it is wealthy and educated, demographics the left hopes will be turned off by Trump's performance. Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda.

"He's MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump continued.

The primary vote could mark the conclusion of a stunning fall for Sanford, whose scandal-pocked career almost ended in 2009, when he acknowledged having a secret extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina while serving as South Carolina's governor.

With 65 percent reporting, first-term state Rep. Katie Arrington is on the verge of unseating a S.C. political fixture for the past 25 years. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.
