  • 2 races are next test for parties in swing state Wisconsin

"Tonight's special election win for Democrats in Wisconsin is more bad news and yet another "wake up call" for Scott Walker, and he knows it", DGA Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson said Tuesday.

Rep. Mark Sanford, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, lost his SC congressional seat Tuesday hours after the president injected himself into the bitter Republican primary by stoking memories of the incumbent's public extramarital affair seven years ago.

Though Wexton favors a ban on the sale of assault weapons, she defies what has been the tendency in some swing districts to nominate Democrats with liberal profiles on other key issues. These victories mean that the state's Democratic party has nominated six women to fill 11 House seats, all but one of which are now occupied by men.

The upset of Sanford, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was the latest sign of Trump's firm grip on the Republican Party.

Polls have closed in Virginia's primary elections.

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., addresses the crowd during a town hall meeting March 18, 2017 in Hilton Head, S.C. Sanford only won re-nomination by 4,000 votes in 2016, but he has also demonstrated a remarkable ability to weather political storms and controversies over the years.

Sanford had never lost a political race in SC and his defeat Tuesday was an abrupt end to a roller-coaster political career that included a resignation as South Carolina's governor following his admission of the affair. In the House, there were 13 Democratic primaries and seven among Republican candidates.

Heller was a past critic of the president but has become closer to him in recent months and helped deliver the overhaul of the US tax codes to Trump's desk in December.

Democrats in Northern Wisconsin declared victory in a state Senate special election on Tuesday, the party's 43rd red-to-blue state legislative flip since President Donald Trump stepped into the White House previous year.
