GOP Senate nominee to be selected in Tuesday primary

  • Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Arrington attacked Sanford for his criticism of President Donald Trump.

Establishment Republicans are also hoping to avoid a Roy Moore situation in their quest to pick their nominee to face off against Democratic Sen.

Primary contests also were being decided in a handful of local offices.

Democrats have elected state Sen.

The Argentina thing is a reference to the affair Sanford carried out while governor in 2009, when he went missing for about a week and was discovered to be spending time in Argentina with a woman who wasn't his wife.

Trump tweeted his endorsement of Arrington along with the swipe at Sanford.

Polls are open 6 a.m.to 7 p.m., and voters must bring a photo ID. Nikki Haley as his U.N. Ambassador, allowing McMaster to ascend to the state's top job.

Now McMaster will now face wealthy mortgage company executive and Iraq War veteran John Warren, who is largely self-funding his campaign, in the June 26 runoff.

A former Central Intelligence Agency officer has won the Democratic primary to challenge Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Dave Brat.

As a candidate for governor in 2017, Stewart spoke out against removing Confederate monuments, including the Robert E. Lee statue that prompted a deadly protest in Charlottesville past year. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a close ally of Trump, was forced into a runoff after failing to muster the required 50 percent vote to win outright. But Trump was definitely a factor in making Sanford the second House Republican in 2018 to lose a primary.

For a Hancock County Senate seat, four-term Rep. Louis Luchini of Ellsworth faced off against fellow Democrat Ian Schwarz of Mount Desert for the Senate District 7 seat now held by Republican Sen. The field spans from establishment favorite Jennifer Wexton, a state senator who touts her bipartisan deal-making in Richmond and says the USA should move cautiously toward universal health insurance, to political newcomers with calls for a $15-hour minimum wage and a more immediate move to single-payer, government health insurance.

In 2016 Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in the 10th by 10 points.

The White House persuaded Tarkanian, a frequent candidate and son of a famed basketball coach in the state, to run for an open House contest instead.


Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., addresses the crowd during a town hall meeting March 18, 2017 in Hilton Head, S.C.

The group advocates a more ambitious strategy of targeting dozens of districts where Clinton was competitive in 2016 but fell short, or where Democrats previously did well.

There are also primaries in some of South Carolina's seven congressional districts. A different candidate could be more competitive in this swing seat, given Tarkanian's losing track record and more conservative credentials.

A key indicator is the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Red to Blue" program, the party's top candidates for flipping Republican seats. She faces Brat, who is seeking his third term after winning a stunning upset in the Republican primary four years ago over then-Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Wexton beat out five other challengers for the Democratic nomination in Tuesday's primary, taking almost 42 percent of the vote.

GOP Rep. Bruce Poliquin, who represents Maine's 2nd Congressional District, is watching which Democrat will come out of the primary Tuesday. All eyes are on these races to see if the Democratic wave that started last November continues to turn the tide this year.

In the 1st District, Vangie Williams won a three-way race for the right to take on GOP incumbent Rob Wittman.

The Democratic Party has seen some intraparty fights this year between liberals and moderates, and that happened again in the race for Nevada governor.

Female candidates: By now, a trend is firmly established.

Attorney General Adam Laxalt won the Republican nomination for Nevada governor, and Trump also tweeted out his support for Laxalt as people were voting Tuesday afternoon.

Allred still looks every bit the National Football League defender he was before becoming a civil rights attorney.

Ranked choice voting: Twice in two years, ME voters have been asked to choose whether they want to elect candidates in a whole new way, by ranking them rather than picking just one.

Republican businessman Shawn Moody has won the right to run to succeed Maine's Republican firebrand Gov. Paul LePage.
