President Donald Trump slammed Republican Congressman Mark Sanford for not supporting his agenda, alluded to the lawmaker's extra martial affair and endorsed his primary opponent - all with less than three hours before polls close in SC.

In his tweet, Trump said: "Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA".

Two longtime Democratic voters in Sparks, both 67, parted ways on the race.Medical technician Pamela Jones said she voted for Sisolak because he seemed more honest.

As S.C. governor, his rigid ideological conservatism made him a favorite of tea party Republicans while putting him at odds with state lawmakers over spending.

Women will represent Democrats in all four of Virginia's competitive House races in November, the latest example of the party turning to women to unseat vulnerable Republicans in the Trump era. On Tuesday, Virginia GOP primary voters ended up nominating a former Trump official who has defended Confederate symbols, Corey Stewart, to challenge Kaine. On the Republican side, Tarkanian (who is now running for the House instead of the Senate) will face off against state Sen.

Polls have closed in both states and well as Maine, North Dakota and Nevada. In Virginia, Republicans went with a candidate who was so over-the-top Trumpy that he wound up being fired from the president's campaign.

'Bless his heart, but it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time, ' Arrington says in one TV ad.

Moments after arriving back in the US from Singapore on Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted his congratulations. The president took note of his last-minute intervention in the race.

With 81 percent of the results in for the 1st District, Katie Arrington remains in the lead with 51 percent of the vote, enough to win the GOP nomination outright.

Earlier in the day, Trump frenemy Sen.

It's possible that Sanford's regular bashing of the President may have been one factor, but let's not kid ourselves.

The swipe was a reference to Sanford's unexplained disappearance from the state in 2009, which he later said was part of an affair he was carrying on with a woman in Argentina.

He also slammed Sanford as being 'better off in Argentina'.

"My political representatives didn't want me to get involved in the Mark Sanford primary thinking that Sanford would easily win - but with a few hours left I felt that Katie was such a good candidate, and Sanford was so bad, I had to give it a shot", Trump wrote on Twitter, while also congratulating Arrington.

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Arrington spent her campaign calling Sanford a "Never Trumper".

While Sanford had already expressed reservations at his chances of winning, Trump's tweet appeared to be the nail in his coffin.

Sanford also reiterates "It may have cost me an election in this case, but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". "That's what our entire political system is based on, is the fact that we can have dissent".

Meanwhile, longtime state Rep. James Smith has won the Democratic seat.

The district, which includes Charleston and the southern coast, has not elected a Democrat since 1978.

Another Republican who was also critical of Trump, Alabama GOP Rep. Martha Roby, is also at risk of losing re-election.

The district could go to a runoff thanks to ex-Democrat Dimitri Cherny, who has 3 percent of the vote. Mark Sanford, who has held the seat since 2013, trails with 46 percent of the vote.

And in suburban Richmond's Seventh District, former Central Intelligence Agency officer Abigail Spanberger was declared the victor for the Democratic nomination, setting the stage for a fall campaign against GOP Representative David Brat.
