How Washington’s delegation will vote on impeachment

KUOW asked Washington's ten congressional representatives how they plan to vote.

Here's what we found out.

  • WA-01 Susan DelBene (D) plans to support both articles of impeachment. In a statement, DelBene said, “I did not come to this conclusion lightly. Impeachment is a serious matter, but no president can be allowed to pressure a foreign country to interfere in our elections.”
  • WA-02 Rick Larsen(D) will vote for impeachment. In a tweet, Larsen said, "It is my duty to defend the Constitution."
  • WA-03 Jaime Herrera Beutler (R) will vote against both Articles of Impeachment. In a statement Beutler said "no one is above the law," but she called the evidence that Trump abused his power "hearsay testimony."
  • WA-04 Dan Newhouse (R) will reportedly vote against impeachment.
  • WA-05 Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R) will vote against impeachment.
  • WA-06 Derek Kilmer (D) will reportedly vote for impeachment.
  • WA-07 Pramila Jayapal (D) will vote for impeachment. Jayapal voted to approve both Articles of Impeachment in her role on the House Judiciary Committee while holding up a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
  • WA-08 Kim Schrier (D) will vote for impeachment. Schrier told KUOW she saw that vote as matter of "patriotism" and that "there are things that are far bigger than politics."
  • WA-09 Adam Smith (D) will be voting for impeachment.
  • WA-10 Denny Heck (D) in the Olympia area will vote for impeachment.

That makes seven likely votes for impeachment and three against, which follows party lines.
