Sanford Says Trump Tweet Sealed His Loss

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) told the Washington Post that President Trump’s tweet slamming him “probably made the difference” in his primary loss, noting that the results were within a few hundred votes of what it would have taken to get into a runoff.

But he added: “I don’t know if the outcome would have been different in the long run, because of the larger tide I was up against.”
