Trump a factor in S.C. races
A bellwether Virginia congressional district promises to be among the most watched races nationally in primary elections in nearly every region of the country.
President Donald Trump also will be a factor, notably in two Republican primaries in South Carolina. Trump is weighing in for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, an early supporter of the president’s 2016 campaign, and against Republican Rep. Mark Sanford, an outspoken critic of the president who is facing a Trump devotee in South Carolina’s 1st District.
Elections are also scheduled in Maine, Nevada and North Dakota. Together, they raise to 21 the number of states having held their 2018 primary elections so far.
