"GOP lawmaker Mark Sanford (S.C.) said the unyielding supporting Republicans are giving President Trump is a "cancerous growth" on the party.
Sanford made the comments in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine two days after his defeat in Tuesday's South Carolina primary race. The outgoing congressman addressed public perception that he wasn't loyal enough to Trump and how it helped lead to this week's loss.
"It is a cancerous growth," Sanford said. "The basis on which people's frustrations have been built is real and understandable in the way that at times Washington doesn't work for them or their families and those they love."
Sanford, a frequent Trump critic, continued that the idea that Republican lawmakers must align closely with the president is "metastasizing."
"And I think that again that which gave rise to the Trump phenomenon needs to be acknowledged as real and valid. I think the metastasization component is the way in which at times the president has pandered in his answers suggesting that there's an easy cure."
Sanford, who had served in the House since 2013, lost the GOP nomination to South Carolina state Rep. Katie Arrington, a vocal supporter of the president. Arrington secured Trump's endorsement on primary day in a tweet in which the president also criticized Sanford.

He is possessed by the hillary demon.
Thanks Mark. You can go now.
Hey, Sanford. Here's the message. The voters fired your ass.
Lazy, low class, unintelligent, POS and now a cancer....
Send back the last 8 years of my taxes and we will call it even.
Swamp creatures keep feeding the cancer and it grows.
Oh, what a circus!
This is the “Luv Gov.”! It would be hard to find a more self absorbed and selfish RINO. He is the cancer and is about to finally be excised.
Why would a solid, conservative, Christian family man Congressman give an interview to Rolling Stone two days after losing an election?
Sanford and Corky should just go pound sand.
