Democratic women win big in key Virginia House primaries
State Sen. Jennifer Wexton, who had the endorsements of numerous state's Democratic officials including Gov. Ralph Northam, won the six-way Democratic primary convincingly.
The South Carolina race for governor also featured a Trump loyalist, Gov. Henry McMaster, but he was unable to avoid a runoff.
For a Waldo County Senate seat, House Majority Leader Erin Herbig, D-Belfast, held a commanding lead over challenger Joseph Greenier of Stockton Springs and will likely face Republican Jayne Giles of Belfast for the seat current held by term-limited Senate President Mike Thibodeau of Winterport.
Longtime Register of Deeds John O'Brien of Lynn also will be facing a Democratic primary challenge in September.
Trump endorsed Sanford's challenger, state Rep. Katie Arrington, who has described the incumbent as insufficiently loyal to the president.
The Republican incumbent has survived a major scandal before- famously disappearing from the state in 2009 when he was governor, claiming to have been hiking the Appalachian Trail, when in fact he was carrying on an extramarital affair in Argentina.
Trump, who issued his tweet as he returned from his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said Sanford "is better off in Argentina".

"He's MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump continued.
In the Republican U.S. Senate primary, Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart garnered 51 percent of the vote in Loudoun but only narrowly beat Del.
As a candidate for governor in 2017, Stewart spoke out against removing Confederate monuments, including the Robert E. Lee statue that prompted a deadly protest in Charlottesville a year ago. Corey Stewart, a combative conservative who almost upset Ed Gillespie for the party's gubernatorial nomination past year, was competing with state House of Delegates member Nick Freitas and pastor E.W. Jackson. The commonwealth has gotten bluer, but the GOP has only moved further to the right there.
Voters using the Democratic Party ballot this primary election have a choice to make about which candidate for Attorney General they would like to see on the general ballot this November. Armstrong's closest opponent was actually state Sen. Both men ran uncontested. Mark Sanford lost to his primary challenger. "Now it's looking more like a race to the bottom".
Not all congressional districts have primaries. A different candidate could be more competitive in this swing seat, given Tarkanian's losing track record and more conservative credentials.
The problem is especially daunting for Democrats in battleground states where congressional district lines favouring Republicans were drawn after the 2010 census, Reuters' analysis found. Tim Kaine, a former governor and vice presidential candidate who is seeking a second term.
The 10th Congressional District race is seen as a tossup, and Democrats have targeted the seat as a battleground in their campaign to gain control of the House of Representatives. Republicans now have majorities in the U.S. Senate and House, along with the presidency and dominance of the policy agenda.
First-term Rep. Rachel Talbot Ross, a Democrat representing Portland's District 40, fended off in a primary challenge from former Rep. Herb Adams, who she defeated by just 28 votes in a three-way primary in 2016. This race won't have a victor or loser until November, but it's worth noting that Comstock (R-Va.) ceded almost 40 percent of the vote to a little-known GOP primary challenger on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, GOP Reps. Scott Taylor in the 2nd District and Dave Brat in the 7th District will face credible Democrats in November.

Female candidates: By now, a trend is firmly established.
South Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota and ME also were choosing candidates for the November 6 general election for Congress and governorships.
For the first time ever, unaffiliated voters will be able to vote in the primary election, but they will need to choose which party they'd like to vote with.
On the Democratic side, one-term Rep. Jacky Rosen was projected as the victor over five long-shot candidates.
