Both Trump's tweet and one of Arrington's ads referred to Sanford's 2009 affair where he flew to Argentina to see his lover while his staff unknowingly told reporters he was hiking on the Appalachian trial. He can win. Even Fake News CNN said the Trump impact was really big, much bigger than they ever thought possible.
Congressman Mark Sanford is best remembered nationally for a highly public extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina several years ago.
In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year - the latest victim of intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era.

The second-term House member's district leans Republican, though Democrat Hillary Clinton received more votes there than Trump did in 2016.
The drama evaporated from both races after direct intervention from Trump and his political team to convince Cramer - who'd already publicly said he wouldn't run - to change his mind and launch a campaign in February.
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.
The Democratic primary in Maine's 2nd Congressional District has drawn national attention for becoming a faceoff between two kinds of candidates that the party has been trying to recruit in swing seats: Jared Golden, an Iraq War veteran and state representative, and Lucas St. Clair, the wealthy heir of the Burt's Bees fortune.
Nevada and North Dakota are home to two of the most pivotal Senate races this year.
Both Democratic and Republican primary voters in SC have overwhelmingly approved questions their parties put on the ballot.
