Trump Makes Last-Minute Endorsement Against Mark Sanford

In the Second Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Taylor will face the victor of the Democratic primary between former U.S. Navy commander Elaine Luria and schoolteacher Karen Mallard.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump added. "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote, referring to Sanford's 2009 trip to South America to have an affair when his staff said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

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

This week's principal focus is on Virginia, a state trending increasingly blue where Republicans hold a number of vulnerable House seats.

Many Nevada voters took advantage of two weeks of early voting but others are still expected to hit the polls June 12.

Trump also tweeted his endorsement of Adam Laxalt, Nevada's attorney general, just after noon Pacific time.

He will face off against Arrington, a state representative, in Tuesday's GOP primary for South Carolina's 1st District. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) endorsing Fredette, Sen.

Rep. Jeff Duncan is seeking reelection for 3rd Congressional District of SC, a position he has held since he was elected in 2010.

The state's tightest House race is in the 10th district, which includes part of Northern Virginia.

"There's the potential absolutely of Nevada turning blue this year, if they can get the turnout", said David Damore, a political-science professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In the 4th District, vacated by retiring Rep. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.

Heller was being challenged from the right by Danny Tarkanian, but Trump persuaded him to drop out of the race.

The Senate landscape will become more settled Tuesday night as well.

The race receiving the most scrutiny is the 10th Congressional District, where six Democrats are vying for the chance to take on two-term GOP incumbent Barbara Comstock. None of the three Senate candidates appears to match that region. Republican incumbent Rep. Bruce Poliquin will attempt to defend his seat against the victor of a three-person Democratic primary featuring state Rep. Jared Golden, bookseller Craig Olson and nonprofit director Lucas St. Clair. One is Sen Heidi Heitkamp's seat in North Dakota. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff. But the 10 also heavily favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, voting for the Democrat by almost 10 points. National Republicans have weighed in on the race, with Sen.

Lloyd, a Lodi City Council member, told the Journal Sentinel that the account was meant for her friends and family. Luria will face off against the slightly more liberal Karen Mallard, a school teacher who supports universal health care and who is a strong critic of U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
