Never Trump Mark Sanford Goes Down In Flames, Might Go Back To Argentina After Primary Loss

We wish him a lovely retirement in Argentina with his mistress.

In another casualty for #NeverTrumpers tonight, Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina’s First District has faced a result very few sitting Congressman have ever had to face: utter defeat.

Katie Arrington, an unapologetic America First candidate, defeated the incumbent soundly in the GOP primary. She will most likely go on to become yet another MAGA ally in Congress, as SC’s First is a heavily Republican district. It will be nice to have a Republican representing it.

President Trump spoke out on the race earlier today, emphatically endorsing Arrington. In fact, Trump referenced Mark Sanford’s rendezvous and hide out in Argentina during his governorship of South Carolina when he disappeared with a mistress.

“He is better off in Argentina,” said President Trump. The incident ultimately led to a hiatus from politics until running for Congress again in 2012.

In spite of President Trump’s numerous America First accomplishments, Sanford clung bitterly to his Never Trump positions. Voters in SC-1 responded by sending Sanford on a long and shameful hike up the ash heap of history.

We wish him a lovely retirement in Argentina with his mistress that ended his first marriage. (We have no idea if that’s actually where he is going, but we’d recommend it.)
