Sen: Following election-day rebuke from Trump, Sanford falls in GOP primary

As Morning Joe talked about Congressman Mark Sanford's defeat last night in the SC primaries, Joe Scarborough called it the latest sign that the Republican Party has become completely subservient to President Donald Trump.

Sanford had been critical of Trump at times, saying he "fanned the flames" of intolerance and decrying his disregard for facts.

Democrats need to gain 23 seats to win the majority in the House.

The South Carolina Republican, who served in Congress from 1995-2001, was re-elected in 2013 in a special election in his Charleston-based district.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Republicans were sealing their own doom in the midterms by fully embracing President Donald Trump. The president took note of his last-minute intervention in the race. "Congrats to Katie Arrington!" the president wrote.

Then he delivered a scathing rebuke of Sanford's personal life, writing: "He is better off in Argentina". "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes".

The congressman, former governor and one-time presidential aspirant was trailing a little-known state lawmaker who slammed him for his repeated criticism of President Trump, the latest sign that the most risky thing to do in the modern GOP is dare to take on the president.

During the 2016 campaign he famously said Trump should "shut up" and stop lashing out at his critics.

"I am grateful for the President's support", Arrington said.

Sanford was rumored to be a potential presidential contender before his political career unraveled toward the end of his second term.

State Senator Jennifer Wexton won the Democratic nomination in the state's 10th district, which includes parts of Northern Virginia. Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) was forced into a runoff after abandoning Trump almost two years ago during the election.
