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.
