Washington State Representative Dan Newhouse, One of 10 House Republicans Who Voted for Impeachment In the wake of the Capitol rebellion, then-President Donald Trump has moved to a general election in the state’s fourth congressional district, according to a race call by the Associated Press.

Newhouse will face Democrat Doug White in the November general election in a heavily Republican district.

Washington’s top-two primary system puts all candidates on a ballot and advances the top two vote getters to the general election, regardless of party.

Newhouse was one of three House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump in Tuesday’s vote. fellow Washington state member of Congress Jaime Herrera Beutler wants to move to the third district; That race has not been called.

And in Michigan, Rep. Peter Meijer was narrowly defeated by former Trump administration official John Gibbs in that state’s Grand Rapids-based third district.

As part of his ongoing revenge tour to oust the Republicans who voted to impeach him, Trump backed both Gibbs and Herrera Beutler and Newhouse’s challengers.
