Challenger Joe Kent has nearly overtaken U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler in vote counts released Friday, leaving the six-term incumbent teetering on the brink of defeat amid Republican backlash over her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. (snip) Herrera Beutler “needs a miracle,” wrote Dave Wasserman, an editor and election expert with the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, on Twitter, calling Kent the “strong favorite to knock her out of the top two.”

Comments:

She became a swamp creature. "We don't have time to get evidence, I mean, we don't need evidence. We have to impeach Trump today."

Yeah, this is totally Tarantino, Kill Bill-esque: revenge is a dish best served cold. Godfather-style killing the heads of the Five Families on your sister’s baby’s christening sort of thing. Getting Medieval on all their behinds!

Wash. has a strange primary, it is totally 'open' and the top 2 vote getters regardless of party go on to the general election. It can result in 2 repubs or Dems on the ticket for the general election. In one of these races there are 7 repubs running, one dem. Repub voters cast three or more times the number of votes than the dem received...but the Dem and the anti-trumper advance because the rest of the vote is fractured.

With a little luck after Liz goes down 8/16 there will only be 2/10 of these RINOs left. In 2024 Trump will finish the rest.

Culp was a terrible candidate. If not for the negative attack ads from the rinos one wouldnt even know he was running in the 4th wa district. I tried to volunteer for his campaign and they didnt follow through. Wasted money on contributions to his campaign. Have to hold my nose and vote for anti-trump newhouse in the fall.

In a huge blow to prosecutors, a Multnomah County judge swiftly ended the trial of Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson and one of his compatriots Tuesday, ruling the state failed to provide sufficient evidence that either man had committed the crime of riot during a brawl outside a Portland bar in 2019. Circuit Judge Benjamin Souede acquitted Gibson, 38, and Russell Schultz, 52, after the state rested its case, finding that no reasonable juror could convict the two based on the evidence presented. “I am somewhat bewildered that the state has driven the case to this point,” Souede said.

The Washington state Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that a person’s race, and law enforcement’s long history of discrimination against people of color, should be taken into account when determining the legality of police seizures. The court also clarified state law to say police have seized a person if an objective observer would conclude that the person was not free to leave or refuse a request. But, the court wrote, that “objective observer” must be aware that discrimination and biases “have resulted in disproportionate police contacts, investigative seizures, and uses of force against Black, Indigenous, and other people of color.”

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., wouldn't commit to throwing her weight behind Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis if he were the GOP presidential candidate in 2024 because of his similarities to former President Donald Trump. "I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous," Cheney said during an interview at a house party last week, according to the New York Times. Cheney, who faces an uphill climb to keep her seat in Congress during next week's Wyoming primary election, said she "would find it very difficult" to support DeSantis in a general election, but also brushed off talk

Murder is about choice too, but that doesn’t mean the Bible condones it. It’s not clear which Bible Rev. Al Sharpton is referring to but it’s not the Christian Bible. President of National Action Network and MSNBC PoliticsNation host Al Sharpton joined Chris Jansing Reports on Thursday to discuss abortion and religion.

In the grips of monomania, psychotic people perseverate on their object of interest. They talk about their enthusiasm incessantly and believe, wrongly, that everyone else is similarly inclined. America’s establishment, left and right, and the media, are obsessed with Donald J. Trump. Trump’s tweets, his pretend press releases, his real ones, doesn’t matter. He occupies every neuron and inflames them. With each sweaty proclamation, the monomaniacs sound increasingly unhinged.

If Rep. Liz Cheney were trying to prove she’s the worst GOP politician in decades, what would she be doing differently? The Wyoming congresswoman, who is about to get blown out in her primary by Harriet Hageman, locked arms with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the 2020 election to spearhead the January 6th committee. What has followed is an exercise in partisan insanity, with proclamations of a “seven-step plan” by Trump to overthrow the government being met with no evidence at all. All the while, Cheney continues to tease bombshells that are supposedly so important that she can wait to reveal them just prior to the mid-terms.
