What to watch in Tuesday’s primaries

What to watch in Tuesday’s primaries

The race between Sanford and Arrington provides the latest test of just how willing Republican voters are to stomach congressional criticism of Trump. In the process, he took a pretty good swipe at the Congressman's infamous affair and disappearance in 2009 - which made put him in the headlines.

By contrast, Trump said that Sanford "has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to [Make America Great Again]".

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

Then the tweet got personal, with Trump saying Sanford is "better off in Argentina".

"This is about a president who presents a grave danger to our democracy", he told ABC News.

In the wake of the 2016 election of President Donald J. Trump-and the controversies, scandal and investigations that have embroiled the White House and Congress since-Democrats have surged to run for office, including at one time as many as 11 candidates for the seat.

Heitkamp, 62, is stressing her work for her state's agriculture and energy interests, along with her votes with Republicans on legislation rolling back Dodd-Frank rules for regional and community banks and for some of Trump's nominees, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The big race in ME in November will be for governor, where Democrats see an opportunity to flip a Republican seat held by outgoing Gov. Paul LePage. Kaine's primary Tuesday will test how much enthusiasm moderate Democrats can drum up in 2018. She has also established herself as a moderate Democrat with a reputation for working with Trump and Republicans - something that could be seen as an asset by voters in a state that Trump carried by 35 points in 2016.

On Tuesday, June 12, voters in Virginia will head to the polls.

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C. - a former SC governor who has never lost a bid for political office - is sweating Tuesday's primary against a newcomer who has portrayed him as a disloyal Never-Trumper, Politico reported.

Sanford endorsed Texas Sen.

Republicans in Virginia are picking between Corey Stewart, who has built his public profile on defending Confederate monuments, state delegate Nick Freitas, the favorite of the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity and a Rand Paul ally, and minister E.W. Jackson, who has taken a series of hardline conservative positions on social issues.

Sanford, a member of the hard right House Freedom Caucus, has always been one of the few congressional Republicans willing to openly break with Trump. Still, she'll face a hard general election against Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., the likely GOP Senate nominee.

Another House race to watch is in South Carolina's first district, where Republican incumbent Mark Sanford, the Palmetto State's former governor, faces a tough challenge from state Representative Katie Arrington.

Only 15 of the 99 competitive seats are now held by Democrats, while 84 are held by Republicans. Dean Heller. And in North Dakota, Republicans will pick Rep. Kevin Cramer to challenge Democratic Sen.

There are two candidates on the Republican side. While pundits say Congresswoman Comstock may be vulnerable, she is a formidable candidate who easily beat all of her challengers. She's a former chairwoman of James City County Council. Scott Hammond and former reporter Michelle Mortensen. He faces a field of candidates that also includes state treasurer Dan Schwartz.
