“Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) appears to have lost his Tuesday primary, which became a referendum on his criticism of President Trump.
State Rep. Katie Arrington, who hammered Sanford as a traitor to Trump, is projected to win the GOP primary in a victory that may spell the end of Sanford’s long political career in the state.
The Associated Press called the race just after midnight, with Arrington leading Sanford, 51 percent-47 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting. Sanford becomes the second incumbent this cycle to lose a reelection bid in the primary.
Sanford had never lost an election until Tuesday, even after he was caught having an affair in 2009 while governor. But his willingness to question Trump, who is lionized by the GOP primary electorate, proved politically fatal.
The congressman repeatedly criticized Trump both during the election and since the president took office. In 2017, he told Politico that Trump “has fanned the flames of intolerance” and has been one of the few GOP lawmakers to demand Trump release his tax returns.
That criticism became the centerpiece of Arrington’s campaign — she blasted Sanford as a “Never Trumper” on the stump and in campaign ads, arguing that the district would be best served by a Trump ally instead of an antagonist.”

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
Anyone standing up to Donald Trump is suffering from the retaliation from him. Many are stepping away from the confrontation between themselves and him. In a democracy the idea is that you can make up your own mind and decisions WITHOUT THE FEAR OF BEING RETALIATED AGAINST.
How the hell are we gonna deprogram all these Cult 45™ followers? I feel despair that anyone would choose a person over their country. And the phrase you meant to refer to, Mark, is "call and response." And you're right. That's exactly what it was like. <sigh>
V Ling Correct but $700 billion dollars isn’t the answer; I’m not asking for a immediate recall of troops from the Middle East but a slow recall. Then politicians can propose legislation to have that mo yeah saved go directly to veterans and the infrastructure needed to do so.
Unlikely, unless democrats choose yet again corporate candidate. What this primary showed is that another corporate candidate lost to grass roots candidate. Democratic grassroots just have much bigger potential than GOP grassroots, so if DNC does not f*up the primary, Trump doesn't have a chance.
all you idiots out there that are loving that woman did you clowns hear any policy whatsoever? at all? does policy even matter? its like you fuckstains think this is a football game and alll you care about is your guy won....but what did you win? nothing....a feeling
You're not going to like this, but you have another 6 years or so to talk about president Trump. Trumps base has grown and Dem's are going to run a Hillary clone or someone equally detestable, and you are gonna see another surprise like the last election. It's pretty sad to see the true colors of America but mark my words, this is gonna get even worse.
Principled people would just answer the accusation of not being loyal and a traitor to Donald Trump with the retort that they can't be traitors to Trump, only to their country and state and that's what they have to be loyal to. Saying, that the President deserves loyalty over the country is what I'd call a treasonous comment. The stupid portion of the electorate might then force you to take the L regardless, but at least you don't have to berate yourself later.
Politicians are turning more and more into elementary school bullies. Just a bunch of schoolyard nanabooboo crap. Going right for the easy talking your opponent down, short comings they have, and just downright dragging each other through the mud. Instead of talking about what their views are on issues and what they are going to try and do about it. It's become just so hard to even bother because you know it's all about the other person not themselves. It's exhausting honestly.
He wasn't a tRump critic. He voted with the republikkkans 95% of the time. They just replace him with a cracka who will vote with cracka-in-chief 100% of the time. I don't feel sorry for him at all !!!
It can't be year of the women and year of the Trump at the same time, they cancel each other out. He's has an awful track record with women and any woman who supports him is not pro-woman, they're just crazy.
lol well thanks for sharing, I'll sleep well at night knowing that you weren't "wounded" by a statement of the obvious.
P.S. my transgendered brother in law took a break from adjusting his bra strap, to laugh at this comment thread. it's sad to know that a man wearing a bra is thicker skinned than you are.
Brainwashing works. Fox News and Alex Jones are all propaganda networks. Trump and Hannity tell each other bedtime stories every night. Seth Rich, pizzagate, black market baby parts. All proven wrong, but they're living in a cuckoo banana land. So cuckoo they don't even realize how much of an oxymoron "year of the woman and the year of Trump" is.
I had an epiphany earlier today. All the US soap dramas that I'm aware of all involved the lives of rich people. Dallas, Dynasty, Knot's Landing, which all gave a somewhat sanitised version of US suburbia or was just based on rich people. Contrast that with British soaps and ours are all based around the lives of ordinary people. Why is that, I wonder? Maybe Americans identify more with rich people than ordinary people, even when they're the ordinary people being trodden on? Would explain a lot, especially right-wing attitudes in the US.
+Llynnyia The American Dream is alive and well! Only problem is that its just a dream and always has been. Unless you're in the very, very, very small percentage of the population that's lucky enough to have the correct talents, people skills and motivation, _and_ be in the right place at the right time with the right product.. for everyone else (like 99.999% of people,) the American Dream has about as much chance of becoming reality as Homer's donut dreams. That's not the 0.1% (most of whom inherited their wealth or at least enough to start in the 1% and move up.) That's the people who didn't start in the 0.1% but made their way into it on their own.
But that much is the same in almost every country. Its the American Delusion that makes like half the population or more think they're actually in that 0.001%. And many of them would rather believe that math doesn't work than believe the Dream is unattainable.
This is why Republicans are so spineless towards Trump. The few who do stand up against the most reprehensible political charlatan of our time are shamed and thrown out by voters. The problem isn't the politicians, the problem is the electorate who votes them into office.
And if youre wanting to play the numbers game, Steven Crowder has gained 1.3 million, The Daily Wire has gained 500K, and Alex Jones has gained 400K, all of these happened within the past year. How long did you say you've watched them? x3
I like how you consider democraps to be even right leaning when their just as bad as you leftists, sorry but if thats the case youll never win again, being far left or far right doesnt work out.
Again this is only because their promoted by Youtube, not only that but they dont get demonitized, simply because Youtube is biased as hell at censoring people that have facts. And yes they have lost many viewers, compare the people who watched them say about 2 years ago to now, they have lost a lot, the only people who watch it now are far left socialist atheists, but even atheists seemed to have jumped ship now. *cough* Dave Rubin.
Arrington sounds like a nutjob with a Napoleon complex. This race will be an interesting one because she running against Joe Cunningham who has a surprisingly progressive platform for SC. It is also worth noting that District 1 is made up of mostly the heavily populated and largely democratic coastal areas.
CNN isn't an echo chamber--they go out of their way to invite right-wingers on their panels, in the same way the NYT allows conservatives to infest its op-ed section. As to Trump's fascist tendencies: he speaks (not in apparent jest) about defying the presidential two-term limit; his public statements are an Orwellian litany of falsehoods (a widely observed trait of those who run authoritarian and totalitarian regimes--google "trump's lies" or some equivalent, unless you think search engines are agents of Soros); his appointments to head the DoJ, the EPA, the State department, and the department of Education are all people who are ideologically committed to destroying those very agencies. Besides handing this country to corporate polluters and destroying the base of education a citizenry requires to resist oppression, the destruction of the government's apparatus will have the effect of centralizing decision making, and power, in the White House. Another sign of fascism: the absurd inflation of the war machine's budget--which, before Trump, was already an unconscionable six times that of China's. Trump appeals to the worst instincts of his base--from joking about killing Clinton, to demonizing illegals (who are more likely to pay taxes than Trump), to describing the press in terms reminiscent of the Nazi party. To speak of Nazis, after that horror in Charlottesville, he described white supremacists in terms of moral equivalence with those who protested them. Finally, the son of a bitch continues to hold rallies. Why? Doesn't he have work to do? Unless he thinks his real work is keeping the MAGAheads enraged enough to try assassinating Mueller.
All right time to call out this fascist bs, tell me, where has Trump committed an act of fascism? I can name several sources of leftist being more fascists than any of the right, from YouTube, to college campuses, to your modern day echo chambers such as CNN, the Turds, and most other mainstream media. And what the hell are you talking about? Obama is as much a christian as Bernie is a jew. Not saying either are Muslim, but I digress.
this woman gets that when you choose to go deplorable, you go full deplorable, not half deplorable. it is the only way to excite these primate brains with overactive amygdala and poor compensatory prefrontal cortex function.
I STILL can't believe they actually decided to call themselves Deplorable after they were called so by their opponents... WHY would one be so fool as to take a negative like that as an identifying label?!?!? Bloody craziness!!!
Trump,s strategy is two-fold. If not impeached, then try to become a dictator. If impeached, then resign and clam fake news (use fake news argument to keep political power, and eventually become a dictator). Either way this man will not quit. He defines himself based on personal power and as such he will, no matter what, pursue power one way or the other, always.
Thanks for reading.
I think she just wanted a well known liberal female senator for them to boo. Just listen to the difference in how they talk. Katie is punchy and full of energy. Sanford stutters and speaks over the comprehension level of SC republicans.
In the 19 thirties in Germany well thinking people realised what a disaster the new leadership was... with the right media cooperation the growth proved unstoppable.
That's how these dynamics go. Do something!
Rednecks are an uneducated hive mind. There's no intellectual though process behind their decision making. The only thing a candidate needs to do to win is mention guns and Jesus in their campaign speeches.
Ugh..i lived in sc..horrifying for women and domestic violence against women..pedophilia is super high too without almost any prosecution..countues still shoot dogs to death etc. Please sc. I don't get how any woman could support such a huge mysogonist. He's basically an Incel. He hates women, they are objects to him
My only issue's with warren is her getting behind clinton like a bootlicking dem and her flip flopping on an issue that i cant think of. But otherwise she's ALOT better then most dems and i would be ready to vote for her if she kept most of her ideals for president. Look bernie aint perfect either, but some of this trump cultapersonality scares the hell out of me.
all these pro trump idiots are going to regret spreading his propaganda one day. There's no way that Trump will be remembered as anything but a wannabe Facist pig and there names will be attached to him.
Teen Shinobu Is best Waifu career ending presidency. Destroy the heroes now, Ruin the fools for later. Putin leaves the USA with no govt to oppose his global communist gains.
Thank you, president Donald trump - for sticking your dirty draft dodging dick in America’s coffers
aresmars2003 tribal politics is a white supremacist phrase right? When we get rid of all the darks we go back to tribalism to fight for the ruling position. I’ve heard that before, no one says blacks have tribal politics. Whites get tribal politics, blacks just get tribes!
I think you're skipping over just how lousy Sanford was as a governor. Put differently, trump capitalized on this fact. SC has terrible schools, extremely high energy prices, crime, inadequate infrastructure, etc.
The GOP are becoming increasingly cultish and autocratic under Trump. Hopefully we can still defeat these monsters in upcoming elections, and I don't mean by voting for establishment Democrats that live off of corporate handouts.
But I thought Jesus forgave Sanford???? Guess not!
On the plus side, Katie is a liar like all republicans. I'm sure she has a sharpened knife ready to stick in Trump's back when the opportunity presents itself.
Wallflower - True, but I do think the right takes it to a whole other level of viciousness and even hatred. Even going so far as to create fake news (like, actual fake news) to take down not only their opponents, but also their own when they are deemed to have stepped out of line.
donald trump slayer of socialism punisher of progressives reaper of regressives all hail lord king emperor trump
anna is one basic bitch she is a dumb 3 but she thinks she is an intelligent 8 a very basic bitch
Sanford uses tax payer money to cheat on his wife - that's just fine and dandy for conservative voters.
Sanford says Trump should release his tax returns for transparency - conservatives voters are outraged!
Conservative voters have no values. They have no principles. Their standards are as low as they can possibly go.
What basic value is Trump violating that Republicans hold dear?
In my eyes whatever differences they have, to the Republicans they don't seem to be fundamental enough to break alliances so who are you to tell *them* what their moral code is when you're not even one of them?
how about change the title "president" to king or emperor, then? obviously USA looks more and more like a kingdom now than an actual democratic country... I hope the citizens on the other side can still flipped this around
