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

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

In Washington’s top-two primary system, all candidates appear on one ballot, and the top two vote-getters advance 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 Congressman Jaime Herrera Beutler is seeking to advance in the 3rd District; that race was not called.

And Michigan was represented by Peter Meijer narrowly won Former Trump administration official John Gibbs in that state’s Grand Rapids 3rd District.

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