Sanford: Trump is being allowed to lie without consequences

MORE (R-S.C.) told NBC News that there are no seeming consequences for President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump suggested that North Korean TV anchor should get a job in United States: report AT&T announces it has completed acquisition of Time Warner Classified Israeli report raises questions about Trump-Kim summit: report MORE when he lies, cautioning that there would be "incredibly harmful" repercussions in Washington's future.

During Tuesday night's primary election, State Representative Katie Arrington defeated Sanford 50.6 percent to 46.5 percent.

There are also primaries in some of South Carolina's seven congressional districts.

There was also the return of Sharron Angle, the conservative who once ominously threatened to "take out" then-Sen.

"People are running for the hills", Sanford said.

When the votes were counted, Arrington pulled the upset. Mark Meadows, the chair of the Freedom Caucus and a Trump confidante, said in a statement: "Mark Sanford has been a valued member of the Freedom Caucus and certainly has been a thoughtful member of Congress".

Arrington has campaigned on Sanford being disloyal to Trump. In February, Sanford expressed a number of complaints about Trump to Politico Magazine, including a claim that the president "has fanned the flames of intolerance". Had Arrington missed this threshold, she would have had to go up against Sanford again on June 26. As governor, Sanford secretly travelled there while having an affair.

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", Trump tweeted at around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, just a few hours before polls closed. Mark Sanford lost to his primary challenger.

The South Carolina primary is another gauge of whether the Republican electorate is willing to tolerate any criticism of Trump.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said.

Trump doubled down on the tweet on Wednesday, saying he had to get involved in the race because Sanford was "so bad".

That was not enough for Trump, who has made allegiance to his leadership a litmus test in many Republican races across the country.

Democratic State Sen. Jennifer Wexton was the clear victor in a six-way primary in a northern Virginia district considered key to the House battleground map this fall, and will challenge Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock.

"We're going to have a lot of fun between now and November, folks", Stewart told a raucous crowd at his victory party Tuesday evening.

McMaster was the top vote-getter in Tuesday's primary but failed to win the 50 percent necessary to avoid a runoff.

Four other states voted Tuesday, including several races that are seen as key to determining which party controls the House.

She also tried to tap into longtime uneasiness with the incumbent, who's been a familiar name to Lowcountry voters. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

"Henry McMaster has a long history with the Republican Party in the state, but his earlier bid for governor in 2010 fell short", he said, referring to McMaster's third-place finish in that primary, far behind front-runner Nikki Haley, who won a runoff against Gresham Barrett. 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.
