Washington State Rep. Dan Newhouse, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump after the Capitol uprising, has advanced in the state’s 4th Congressional District general election, according to The Associated Press. press

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

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

Newhouse was one of three House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump on Tuesday’s ballot. Congressman Jaime Herrera Beutler, D-Washington, is looking to run in the 3rd District; that race was not called.

In Michigan, Rep. Peter Meijer narrowly lost to former Trump administration official John Gibbs in the state’s 3rd District in Grand Rapids.

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