Trump attacks Republican up for re-election with reference to affair

Trump urged SC voters to pick Republican candidate Katie Arrington over incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford, whom Trump attacked in a tweet by invoking the congressman's 2009 extra-marital affair.

"Based on the number I see, I think that I'll end up losing this election", he said.

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.

But Arrington has hammered Sanford for his criticism of President Donald Trump, and she enough GOP voters in the district may agree with her.

"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.

Shortly after the president's Tuesday tweet, senior conservative GOP members rallied around Sanford. Alabama's Martha Roby was forced to a runoff.

Since then, Sanford has accused Trump of fanning "the flames of intolerance", criticized Trump's use of the word "shit-hole" to describe some third world countries, and most recently called the president's plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports "an experiment with stupidity".

The cult of President Donald Trump.

Sanford had represented the Charleston district on and off for six terms, with eight years in the Governor's Mansion in between.

'I'm not looking for disagreement with the administration, ' Sanford told Politico. Sanford also said in a 2017 interview that Trump "has fanned the flames of intolerance".

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

Congressman Mark Sanford is best remembered nationally for a highly public extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina several years ago. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

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.

Caleb Frostman, the Democrat running in Wisconsin State Senate District 1, claimed victory in Tuesday's special election and Frostman's campaign manager, Hannah Akbik, told CNN that Republican Andre Jacque conceded the race in a phone call with the Democrat.

Yes, that reference to Argentina is the thrice-wedded president (who may have had an affair with a porn star) accusing Sanford of being bad at marriage, apparently without a hint of irony.

The president has been back to his name-calling ways lately, and kept it up Wednesday, calling the 2016 Democratic vice presidential nominee "a total stiff". But during the campaign, he ran ads saying how often he voted with the president.

Heller's state is Democrat-leaning and was narrowly won by Clinton in 2016, while Heitkamp's is dominated by Republicans and voted overwhelmingly for Trump.
