Washington State Rep. Dan Newhouse, one of 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment then-President Donald Trump, in the wake of the Capitol uprising, has advanced to the general election in the state’s 4th Congressional District, according to a race call by The Associated Press.

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

Washington’s top-two primary system puts all candidates on one 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, which was on Tuesday’s vote. Washington State Member of Congress Jaime Herrera Beutler seeks advance in 3rd District; that run has not been called.

And in Michigan, Rep. Peter Meijer narrowly defeated by former Trump administration official John Gibbs in the state’s Grand Rapids-based 3rd District.

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