In another big Virginia race, Republican Corey Stewart - once a state chairman to Trump's presidential campaign who was sacked for protesting the Republican National Committee - won the Republican primary to face Democratic Sen.

President Donald Trump is crediting his Election-Day tweet in part for the defeat of a South Carolina Republican congressman who has been critical of his administration.

"He's MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump continued. Trump lashed out against Sanford, declaring him "unhelpful" in a tweet and referring to his 2009 extramarital affair. He returned in 2013 and won a special election to his old U.S. House seat, holding on twice more.

Sanford is in a tight race for the Republican nomination in South Carolina's 1st District on Tuesday. Sanford had described Trump as untrustworthy and culturally intolerant, and had repeatedly criticized the president for not releasing his tax returns.

As votes were still being counted in South Carolina, Sanford told supporters he was "going to lose this race" to state Rep. Katie Arrington, who had criticized the former governor for disloyalty to Trump.

With his late entry into the race, Trump let Sanford know that has not gone unnoticed.

Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years.

"In response to the president's tweet, Michigan Rep. Justin Amash came to his colleague's defense, hitting back at Trump's remarks by replying, "@MarkSanford's job is to support and defend the Constitution. In Alabama, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby is in a July 17 runoff against former congressman Bobby Bright. In July 2016, shortly after wrapping up the Republican nomination and hoping to unify the party before the convention, Trump paid a high profile visit to congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill. Including Arrington in SC, at least 14 women emerged as nominees in states that also included Maine, North Dakota and Nevada. He is better of in Argentina.

In the past, Sanford said the president should "just shut up" and "quit responding" to critics and focus on the issues at hand.

On "Fox News @ Night", conservative columnist Bethany Mandel said Corker has a point about many Republicans being afraid to run afoul of Trump.

In Sanford, he chose a well-known former governor, who among other criticisms held him partly responsible for a shooting at a congressional baseball practice by stoking national tensions. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was pressed during an interview to explain a tweet he posted on Tuesday calling totalitarian dictator Kim Jong Un "a total weirdo who would not be elected assistant dog catcher in any democracy". The president's record of keeping his promises resonates across the district. And, as a result of that, people who want to get active in office, women who feel a new sense of empowerment, they're picking the Democratic Party. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.

Loudermilk said it's best for lawmakers to take their concerns privately to the White House, as he said he has done behind the scenes on Trump's proposed tariffs. The second-term House member's district leans Republican, though Democrat Hillary Clinton received more votes there than Trump did in 2016. Also, why did it take so long for Trump to get into the game?
