    Sanford goes down in South Carolina

    He just conceded. His first electoral defeat, actually, despite everything.

    Trump really gutted him. He may come to regret that — there are now two Republicans headed out the door on the oversight committee.

    I guess it's official now?

    The GOP really is the Trump Party...

    Does not help the Dems... and not in that District, or any other. Looks like voter turnout (or just votes available) even in these primaries today in SC, are highly in favor of REPs over DEMs all around.

    What are you talking about???

    Simply pointing that he mostly likely lost because he said some mean things about Trump in the past. I guess that means if you dare to question the Dear Leader, you are now voted out of office.

    It's not the GOP anymore.

    In other news - in a very crucial state - despite Walker's best efforts to block the special election

    Wisconsin Democrats just picked up a Republican-held state legislature seats in a duo of special elections on Tuesday, serving yet another wake-up call to Republicans in the state.

    Democrat Caleb Frostman, the former head of the Door County Economic Development Corp, won northeastern Wisconsin’s First Senate District, which voted for President Donald Trump by a whopping 17 points in 2016. Frostman’s seat will be up for reelection again in November.

    This is undoubtedly a victory for the state’s Democratic Party, in the third Wisconsin state election this year that has left Republicans sounding alarm bells. In January, Democrats flipped a rural Trump +17 state district with a comfortable 10-point margin of victory — a loss Wisconsin’s Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who is also up for reelection this year, called “a wake-up call for Republicans in Wisconsin.” Liberals also won a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court by a huge margin in April.

    More good news..go women!!

    Virginia is quietly one of the most important states in the race for the House — at least four seats should be competitive in November — and Democrats have now nominated a woman as their candidate in every one of those important elections.

    In the Virginia Second, they nominated veteran Elaine Luria to challenge Rep. Scott Taylor, In the Seventh, Abigail Spanberger got the nod and is now tasked with toppling Dave Brat, one of the most conservative members of the House. And Jennifer Wexton emerged from a crowded primary and will now face Rep. Barbara Comstock, long considered to be one of the most vulnerable House Republicans in the country, in the 10th.

    And prior to primary day, in a local Democratic convention, the party picked Leslie Cockburn in the campaign to replace outgoing and scandal-plagued Republican Rep. Tom Garrett. Each of this races is pegged by election forecasters to be either a toss-up or to lean slightly toward the Republicans. These seats would absolutely be in play in a wave year, especially in a state that is consistently trending bluer all the time.

    Already knew that.

    But picking up primary wins in states that are a lot more competitive.
