Political Career of Katie Arrington
In the 2018 election cycle, Arrington declared she will run for Congress in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district. She was challenging Mark Sanford for his seat in the House.
She received national media interest because it was considered as a test of how independent a Republican congressman might be from President Donald Trump.
Arrington ran advertisements accusing Sanford of not being a strong enough Trump supporter. Sanford has been a vocal opponent of Trump since his inauguration. Sanford was one of just four Republicans in the House who voted against Trump’s interests more frequently than he did.
It was noted that Arrington, who made her pro-Trump sentiments a focal point of her campaign, looked to be critical of Trump in 2016.
Trump-backed Arrington over Sanford on the day of the Republican primary on June 12, saying she will be “tough on crime” and “continue our fight for lower taxes.”
Carrie Dann from NBC wrote, “In his second last-minute endorsement of the afternoon, President Donald Trump is backing Katie Arrington in her primary against his sometimes-critic incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford. What’s more, him not endorsing Sanford includes an allusion to the “hiking the Appalachian Trail” scandal that rocked Sanford’s career and his marriage when he admitted to an extramarital affair with an Argentinian woman.”
In the Republican primary in June 2018, Arrington beat Sanford, receiving 50.5 percent of the vote. Arrington was barely beaten by Democratic nominee Joe Cunningham in the general election of November 2018.
Donald Trump’s support of Katie Arrington
Katie Arrington‘s and other republicans’ endorsement and overwhelming support from Donald Trump are valuable and incredibly crucial for any other republican. The only thing that counts to Republicans is their devotion to and support for Trump.
Trump endorsed Katie Arrington on 9th February writing, “Katie Arrington is running against an absolutely terrible candidate, Congresswoman Nancy Mace, whose remarks and attitude have been devastating for her community, and not at all representative of the Republican Party to which she has been very disloyal. Katie Arrington, on the other hand, is liked and respected and a true Republican. Her automobile accident a number of years ago were devastating, and made it very difficult for her to campaign after having won the primary against another terrible candidate, “Mr. Argentina.” Katie is strong on the Military, our great Vets, Law Enforcement, the Border, and will fight very hard for our under-siege Second Amendment and Lower Taxes. Katie is a wonderful woman and has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Katie reacted, “I am honored to receive the endorsement of President Trump. Under his leadership, our country was on a pathway to unparalleled success. His America First agenda uplifted families across the Lowcountry and our Nation. I am proud to have worked closely with President Trump on Operation Warp Speed.
Right now, we have a representative in this seat who sold us out to build her own brand. Not only did she sell us out, but she relied on President Trump to get to DC and turned her back on him the first opportunity she had. With President Trump’s support and the backing of the hardworking people of the Lowcountry, I know we will fire Nancy Mace and send a Pro-Trump, America First Servant Conservative to Washington.”
