Loudmouth #NeverTrumper Mark Sanford Loses SC Primary to Pro-Trump Candidate – Congratulations Katie Arrington!

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) is a staunch #NeverTrumper.

Sanford went on MSNBC to bash President Trump over his sh*thole comments.

Sanford was expected to be a shoo-in for releection.

But the bitter #NeverTrumper was forced to start spending money to smear his Republican opponent in the final hours of his primary campaign.

Sanford ran against Pro-Trump Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington in the Republican primary.

President Trump tweeted out in support of Katie Arrington on Tuesday.

Trump tweeted Sanford would be better off in Argentina – a hit on his former long distance affair.

Sanford lost on Tuesday in the GOP primary.
Another #NeverTrumper bit the dust.

FOX News reported:

Incumbent Republican South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, a frequent Trump critic who the president lambasted earlier in the day as “nothing but trouble” and “very unhelpful,” was ousted in Tuesday night’s primary by state Rep. Katie Arrington.

On a key primary night with elections also held in Maine, Virginia, Nevada and North Dakota, the results in South Carolina were an unmistakably positive referendum on President Trump’s tenure.

Arrington’s shock win was also a dramatic rebuke of Sanford’s heated “Never Trump”-style rhetoric and scandal-pocked career. It signaled that the president’s base in the state remains solidly behind him ahead of November’s midterm elections, despite withering criticism from both inside and outside the Republican party.

Vote for Katie Arrington.
