#SC1: Katie Arrington Vanquishes Mark Sanford

Arrington spent her campaign calling Sanford a "Never Trumper". Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) was forced into a runoff after abandoning Trump almost two years ago during the election. And hours before polls closed, Trump posted on Twitter supporting her.

McMaster, an early supporter of the president's 2016 campaign, had Trump's full endorsement, marked by a weekend tweet. It was helping her gain traction even before Trump sent that tweet.

That was a reference to Sanford's surprise disappearance from the state as governor, which he later revealed was to continue his affair with an Argentine woman.

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. The GOP Senate nominee in Virginia, Corey Stewart, has underscored his efforts to combat illegal immigration and is a champion of Confederate symbols.

On the Democratic side, voters also face a choice between political experience and newcomer perspective. Tim Kaine in the fall.

"They keep running Alabama candidates and Alabama campaigns, and they've just quit communicating with the northern Virginia suburbs", former GOP Rep. Tom Davis told CNN when asked about Virginia Republicans' struggles in recent elections. "This is clearly not the Republican Party I once knew, loved and proudly served". "I think I'll end up losing this election", he said. "And he has Stewart voters to thank for it".

A second incumbent Republican congressman has lost his seat in a primary featuring intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era. There is no Democratic primary for this race. Both Horsford and Hardy want their old job back; both won their primaries Tuesday, setting up a rematch in one of the swingy-est districts in the nation.

With the first reported results in for South Carolina's primary Tuesday night, Greenville businessman John Warren leads the GOP race for governor with 35 percent. Mark Sanford, who has held the seat since 2013, trails with 46 percent of the vote.

She will face Democratic challenger Joe Cunningham in the heavily Republican district this November.

Two low-key primaries went exactly as expected Tuesday. Democrats in Nevada chose Representative Jacky Rosen, a first-term lawmaker and member of the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus, to challenge GOP Senator Dean Heller.

The drama evaporated from both races after direct intervention from Trump and his political team to convince Cramer - who'd already publicly said he wouldn't run - to change his mind and launch a campaign in February. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, April 7, 2018. There are primaries Tuesday night in three of those seats.

Election nights are long - no matter what. So far, CNN has been unable to project a victor in the Maine House District or either the Democrat or Republican primary for Maine governor.

While you wait, though, check out this is saucy video of one of Sen.
