In Virginia on Tuesday, Republicans nominated as their US Senate candidate Corey Stewart, who brought Trump-style brashness and a promise of a "vicious" campaign to his race against a more moderate challenger backed by the state Republican Party.

The congressman, former governor and one-time presidential aspirant was trailing a little-known state lawmaker who slammed him for his repeated criticism of President Trump, the latest sign that the most unsafe thing to do in the modern GOP is dare to take on the president.

He said he hoped his defeat would not dissuade other members from speaking out against Trump.

National "Republicans" took note, honing their general election attacks on Smith before all the primary ballots had even been counted.

Sanford also reiterates "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". He says candidates realized this time around they needed to look outside of the major cities to secure those votes.
