DescriptionEight hours after Republican Katie Arrington lost her South Carolina congressional race, she blamed her shocking defeat on U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford, the outgoing Republican congressman she bested in the primary.

At a Wednesday morning press conference, Arrington addressed the media for the first time since her late-hour loss.

After thanking her husband, God and her supporters, Arrington took aim at Sanford.

“We lost because Mark Sanford could not understand that this race was about the conservative movement — and not about him,” Arrington said, standing at the podium in the very room where she had initially planned to give her victory speech.
