Trump effect setting off wave of GOP candidates in midterm elections

2018 Election: What to expect in Nevada, Virginia, Maine, North Dakota and South Carolina - Philly

Vying to defeat her in November are four Democrats who are facing off Tuesday - state Sen.

Rep. Martha Roby, for example, was forced into a runoff last week in Alabama after her opponents seized on her own rift with the president. MORE (S.C.), days after his loss to a pro-Trump candidate in a GOP primary, offered defiant words on "Morning Joe", saying he will always pledge allegiance to the flag rather than a president. He also criticized Trump's actions while in office, such as when he called the president's new tariffs on steel and aluminum 'an experiment with stupidity'.

Arrington, who made a campaign issue of Sanford's criticism of Trump, won 50.6 percent of the vote to Sanford's 46.5 percent with nearly all ballots counted. Tweeting from the plane bringing him home from Singapore, he declared Sanford "very unhelpful" in advancing his agenda. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. "He is better off in Argentina", Trump tweeted.

The President announced his last-minute endorsement of Arrington as the polls neared closing on Tuesday, and also criticized Sanford, who has served the state's First Congressional District in the House of Representatives since 2013. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Sanford, the former SC governor, had never lost an election before Tuesday, even after a high-profile extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina.

Trump himself tweeted an attack against Sanford late in the day, and endorsed Arrington in the 11th hour. Last night avid Trump loyalist Corey Stewart won the GOP's nomination for an open Senate seat in Virginia. Trump has treated Heitkamp better than other red-state Democratic senators, as she has crossed party lines to vote for some of his policies and nominees. He also thrusted some blame onto Trump for increasing divides within the modern Republican party and creating an even more volatile political climate.

I know that sounds very abstract. I think his response was, 'I want to protect Article I, Article II, Article XII, ' going down the list. "And he has Stewart voters to thank for it".

Arrington also, in a previous Breitbart News radio interview, pledged to join the House Freedom Caucus - a group that now has no women in it but will when she arrives in Congress next year.

He admitted to sinking deep enough into depression to "write the note" before seeking professional help. It is available every Monday through Friday between 6 p.m. and midnight in the Central time zone.

Tarkanian is one of the only Republicans in Nevada who was on the ballot in 2016 for a national race who stuck with President Trump and did not abandon him when House Speaker Paul Ryan did abandon the president and encouraged other members to do so as well.

He demurred during the run-up to the 2016 election when asked if he'd support Trump and spoke out against the president after the election on issues such as limiting Muslim immigrants. "Virginia is a key part of that effort and EMILY's List is proud to stand with the women running in these targeted races". "Is it just about electing all women even if they're hyper Trump supporters".

Meghan McCain on Wednesday scoffed at her fellow "The View" co-hosts over "identity politics" after Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin celebrated a Republican woman defeating the GOP incumbent in SC. Jacque confirmed his concession in a phone call with CNN.

The district, which stretches up past Green Bay along Wisconsin's northern peninsula, has traditionally been Republican, with the GOP incumbent who ran in 2014 winning with 62% of the vote. Horsford won his primary Tuesday and Hardy was leading in early returns.

In Nevada, Democrats are set to nominate Rep. Jacky Rosen to take on Republican Sen.

During the 2016 campaign he famously said Trump should "shut up" and stop lashing out at his critics.

The president and his political team have wrestled with just how involved he should get in Republican primaries.

Here are results from the already-held primaries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a brief run-down of what to watch across the country Tuesday night.
