Dan Newhouse, Doug White advance in 4th Congressional race
The Associated Press has called the race in Washington's 4th Congressional District.
Republican incumbent Dan Newhouse will advance to the general election with Democrat Doug White.
As of Friday evening, each had captured roughly 25% of the votes in that district's open primary election. Newhouse had just 140 more votes than White.
"The votes have clearly stated that it is time to put someone in office that can do the job for the people of Central Washington," White tweeted Friday.
Trump-backed candidate Loren Culp, a former police chief, was more than 6,000 votes behind Newhouse and White on Friday. Culp lost a bid for governor in 2020 and claimed — without evidence — there was voter fraud in that race. Earlier this week, he took to Twitter to claim election violations before any votes had been counted.
Newhouse was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump last year.
