#NeverTrump Republican SPOOKED – Suddenly Spending Money on Ads to Smear Pro-Trump Primary Opponent
Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) is a staunch #NeverTrumper.
Sanford is running against Pro-Trump Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington in the Republican primary.
Sanders went on MSNBC to bash President Trump over his sh*thole comments.
Sanford is spooked and started spending money to smear his Republican opponent.
Sanford needs to go.
Vote for Katie Arrington.
GOP Rep. Mark Sanford has spent the past three years torching President Donald Trump, firmly establishing himself as a staunch critic of the commander-in-chief who, unlike so many others in his party, never came around.
Now he’s suddenly at risk of losing his job over it.
The once seemingly safe former South Carolina governor, who’s never lost a bid for political office, is sweating in the final days of his primary race against state Rep. Katie Arrington, a political newcomer who’s cast Sanford as a disloyal Never-Trumper.
Over the past several weeks, Sanford has launched an 11th-hour TV advertising blitz going directly after Arrington, a sure indication that he’s under duress. He’s barnstorming his Lowcountry district. And on Sunday, he released a full-page letter to a local newspaper in which he pleaded with voters to “look at the list of things I have gotten done on your behalf” and asked them to call him on his personal cell phone if they had any questions.
Sanford is one of a string of Republican lawmakers under mounting pressure over their allegiance to the president. Alabama Rep. Martha Roby, who vowed not to vote for then-candidate Trump after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women, has been forced into a primary runoff.
