Skip to comments.Mark Sanford, Deemed Insufficiently Loyal To Trump, Just Lost An Election For The First Time Ever

A highly publicized extramarital affair didnt end Mark Sanfords political career. Nor did the revelation, less than a month before a 2013 special election for Congress, that he had to go to court because his ex-wife had accused him of trespassing. The National Republican Congressional Committees decision to cut off funding to him that year was also not a fatal blow. He won his next elections.
Then came Donald Trump.
Sanford has been one of the presidents most vocal Republican critics in Congress, and Republican primary voters punished him for it. Sanford lost Tuesday night to Katie Arrington, a state representative who made public support for Trump and Sanfords lack thereof a central issue of her campaign.
"I've always been a realist, and at this point, based on the numbers I see, I think that I'll end up losing this election," Sanford said at his election night party, a little over an hour before the AP called the race.

He was Cantorized, like many more should be, for not funding border security and deportations.
Bush League Republicans must become extinct before the Republic does.
Good, hope we get more examples like this.
Primary all the RINOs and GOPe and get them out of office.
Good riddance to Sanford. He was mostly correct about things but when he wasnt he was way off. This idiot believed in man-made global warming and was incapable of seeing beyond the Leftists cooking of data to fool the gullible. We are going to be doing better without him.
Good. The guy is a louse.
An excellent Congressman during his first stint in the ‘90s. An excellent Governor and once was of Presidential timber... until the affair with the Argentinian and he just lost his mind. A sad shell of a Congressman in his second go-around, turning into an establishment hack and never-Trumper. What a shame. :-(
God bless President Donald Trump!
Yeah. I just remember that bizarro ‘news conference’ he did about the Appalachian trail, when he was in Peru or something, on the taxpayer dime and with some chic.
Praise God! Blessed be the Name of the LORD!
He blamed President Trump for the lunatic Liberal whacko who was sent to shoot up a bunch of Republican Congresscritters playing baseball.
Ah, thank you. The name was familiar, and I do remember this remarkable feat of political ham-handedness now.
Good. Let’s get the momentum going!
Woo Hoo! Yea! Now take Lindsay Grahamnesty with you!!!!!
This guy is an odious dunce who acquired a nasty case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
He never let up on Trump....always ankle bitting him.
Hope he enjoys retirement.
Rounds next, thune after that
Sanford lost Tuesday............................. Well if he wants to continue his career, he can change parties. As so many of those disgruntled Republicans do on occasion. No????
