Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) is projected to advance out of the primary in Washington state’s 4th Congressional District, prevailing in the face of his vote to impeach former President Trump following the Jan. 6 insurrection.
The race was called by The Associated Press at 5:15 p.m. PDT.
The article goes on to state the following:
Newhouse faced six Republican challengers, including top contenders Loren Culp, a former police chief who received a Trump endorsement for denying the validity of the 2020 election results, and former NASCAR driver Jerrod Sessler, who was in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6.
Newhouse, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, had been asked by Washington state Republicans to resign over his vote.
The New York Times reports:
Mr. Newhouse, 66, drew the ire of Mr. Trump and local Republicans after supporting his second impeachment.
A hops and alfalfa farmer, Mr. Newhouse had been vice chairman of Mr. Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign in Washington State. But after the impeachment vote, six Republican county chairmen in his district called on him to resign.
Mr. Newhouse — who, like his father, served as a state legislator — resisted those demands, saying he remained a conservative Republican and urging the party instead to focus on holding the Biden administration accountable.
He was supported by the Defending Main Street super PAC, which ran an advertising campaign worth about a half-million dollars, according to AdImpact, an advertisement tracking firm.
Newhouse has held office since 2014. He will face Democrat Doug White, who was also projected by the Associated Press to advance to the general election Friday.
