Trump endorses GOP Rep. Mark Sanford's primary challenger

Primaries on tap for Tuesday 2018 Virginia Primary Voter Guide

Unlike the General Election in November, where the victor represents their district in the Virginia General Assembly or U.S. Congress, the victor of Tuesday's primary election only becomes their party's representative in the upcoming general election.

The result is that he has faced a primary challenge from Katie Arrington, a state representative who is campaigning on her loyalty to Trump. He will be a great Governor.

Sanford's seat is likely to remain in Republican hands no matter the victor of Tuesday's primary. Heidi Heitkamp. The primaries are sleepy, but the two states will be among the nation's most competitive Senate battlegrounds in the fall. There are primaries Tuesday night in three of those seats.

Democrats are also waging closely watched contests in Hampton Roads and central Virginia.

And in the 6th and 9th districts, Democrats will pick their candidates for Congress. In Loudoun, all but one delegate is now a Democrat, and Comstock now shares territory with only three Republicans in the state House of Delegates: Dels.

Florence attorney Marguerite Willis, who has said she was driven into the race by "the racist, sexist president of the United States", has argued that a woman is needed to take on the good-old-boy network and fight for better lives for women and the poor.

There's also a Republican primary Tuesday in the 10th District. Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) is nearly certain to win the Republican primary to face Sen.

In the Seventh Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Dave Brat will face off against the victor of a Democratic primary between former Central Intelligence Agency operative Abigail Spanberger and retired Col. Dan Ward.

In an interview over the weekend, Sanford told Politico his disagreements with President Donald Trump are not personal. Tarkanian narrowly lost to Rosen in 2016 and was considering challenging Heller from the right until Trump urged him to back away from a primary battle. No Republican challenger filed to face him.

President Trump tweeted his endorsement of Katie Arrington roughly three hours before polls closed in SC.

"They keep running Alabama candidates and Alabama campaigns, and they've just quit communicating with the northern Virginia suburbs", former GOP Rep. Tom Davis told CNN when asked about Virginia Republicans' struggles in recent elections.

Republican Catherine Templeton and Democrat Marguerite Willis are vying to become South Carolina's governor, though both face long odds of emerging victorious in their primaries.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., is not facing a primary challenge Tuesday, a sign of his longtime dominance among Democrats in Virginia, where he served as governor from 2006 to 2010.

The incumbent is Republican Barbara Comstock, who last won with 53 percent of the vote against political newcomer LuAnn Bennett. National Republicans have weighed in on the race, with Sen. She's a former chairwoman of James City County Council. On the Republican side, state Attorney General Adam Laxalt is expected to win. He faces a field of candidates that also includes state treasurer Dan Schwartz.
