The hosts were discussing Donald Trump critic Mark Sanford's defeat Tuesday in South Carolina's first congressional district.

Trump tweeted Wednesday that his advisers didn't want him to get involved in the Republican primary, thinking Rep. Mark Sanford "would easily win".

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.

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

Sanford addressed the President's tweet as he acknowledged defeat Tuesday night.

In a tweet posted at 4:12 p.m., less than three hours before polls closed, the president described Sanford as "very unhelpful" in Trump's campaign to "Make America Great Again".

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

With 16 percent of the vote in for South Carolina's 1st District, both incumbent Mark Sanford and challenger Katie Arrington remain almost tied, with the AP giving both candidates 48 percent.

Sanford had represented the Charleston district on and off for six terms, with eight years in the Governor's Mansion in between.

Gov. Henry McMaster is headed to a runoff in the GOP primary. What the GOP voters did last night may have been a move to trade in a scandal-plagued incumbent in favor of someone who will bring less baggage into the November election.

In Democratic primaries - particularly three key House races in Virginia - the theme of this spring's primaries continued: Female candidates are winning at unprecedented rates and often by large margins.

And in the 3rd District, philanthropist Susie Lee is favored in the Democratic primary, while Republicans could choose Danny Tarkanian, the son of the legendary UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, who dropped his Senate bid at the urging of Trump. 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.

Senate Republicans' hopes in Virginia: Sen. In between, Sanford was S.C. governor from 2003 to 2011.
