Another Republican Trump Impeacher Falls to Trump-Endorsed Candidate in Primary

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 3.9 | Relevance 4.6

GOP Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler has lost her bid for reelection in a primary in Washington state to Trump-endorsed Joe Kent. A former Green Beret, Kent has become a favorite of conservative media and has been critical of GOP leadership. “I’ve gone out from the beginning and said that Kevin McCarthy can’t be our speaker,” Kent told POLITICO. Beutler’s loss is the latest blow for the group of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump early last year.
