GOP Challenger Frames Mark Sanford as a 'Never-Trumper' in Tough Race

Share

Less than three hours before SC polls closed on Tuesday in the state's primary elections, President Donald Trump fired off a series of insults against Republican Rep. Mark Sanford and endorsed his GOP opponent, state Rep.

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", Mr. Trump tweeted on his way home from his summit with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un in Singapore.

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

He also slammed Sanford as being 'better off in Argentina'.

One measure of the enthusiasm among Nevada Democrats this year: In-person early voting among registered Democrats for Tuesday's primary was 11% higher than for registered Republicans as of June 7, according to the Nevada secretary of state's office.

U.S. judge rules AT&T can acquire Time Warner for $85 billion
In October 2016 , AT&T announced its plan to acquire Time Warner for $85.4 billion, and a total of $108 billion with debt. The DOJ moved to block the merger in March, arguing that the merger would reduce competition and hurt consumer choice.

It is a different story in western counties, where voters must choose between a Republican and Democratic ballot. "I strongly endorse Adam Laxalt for Governor of Nevada", he tweeted. Tarkanian is instead seeking a House seat. He will not appear on Tuesday's primary ballot since he is the only Republican candidate running for the position.

Although Sanford backed key Republican priorities in Congress such as cutting taxes and healthcare, and has been endorsed by major conservatives groups such as the Club for Growth, he has also been vocal with his criticism of Trump when they have disagreed.

This office is now held by Scott Taylor of Virginia Beach.

The state's tightest House race is in the 10th district, which includes part of Northern Virginia.

"Any one of these charges would be enough for impeachment and the president should have to answer for them in front of the Senate", he said. The victor will challenge GOP Representative Dave Brat, who is seen as potentially vulnerable. But Tarkanian announced in March that he would run for a House seat after Trump urged him on Twitter not to take on Heller.

The couple were first rumoured to be dating in mid-May , shortley after Ariana ended her "toxic" relationship with Mac Miller . Since then, they have been sharing multiple loved-up posts - and Davidson even got two tattoos dedicated to the singer.

Here's a guide of things to watch for in Tuesday's primaries.

Florence attorney Marguerite Willis, who has said she was driven into the race by "the racist, sexist president of the United States", has argued that a woman is needed to take on the good-old-boy network and fight for better lives for women and the poor. Tim Kaine (D- Virginia), those candidates have already won their party's nominations.

With both party primaries set for Tuesday, strong Democratic candidates are expected to emerge to challenge almost every major statewide office now held by Nevada Republicans, offering Democrats their best shot in years to seize political control over the state.

Republican Catherine Templeton and Democrat Marguerite Willis are vying to become South Carolina's governor, though both face long odds of emerging victorious in their primaries. In the swing state of Nevada, Democratic Representative Jacky Rosen is expected to sail to the nomination to face vulnerable Republican Senator Dean Heller. General elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6.

President Trump tweeted his endorsement of Katie Arrington roughly three hours before polls closed in SC. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff.

Trump, Kim shake hands to open momentous summit
It's so far unclear whether the USA and North Korea will release some kind of joint statement or agreement following the sit-down. USA presidents have always faced a predicament in balancing national security and geopolitical priorities with democratic values.

But this year, some Nevada Democrats who normally wouldn't vote in the midterms say they are turning out to make their voices heard.
