Newhouse, who voted to impeach Trump, will advance to general election in Washington district, AP projects

Rep. Dan Newhouse advanced from Tuesday’s all-party primary in Washington state. He will face Democrat Doug White, who was also projected to advance to the general election Friday. In Washington state's nonpartisan primary system, all candidates are listed on the same primary ballot, regardless of party. Of the 10 lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump, four announced they would retire from Congress; four lost their primary elections, while Rep. Tom Rice (S.C.) and Peter Meijer (Mich.) lost their primaries. In the neighboring 3rd District, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler was in a tight contest with Joe Kent, a Trump-endorsed veteran who has called people arrested in the Jan. 6 investigation “political prisoners”
