Attorney Matt Larkin has won the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Kim Schrier in Washington’s 8th Congressional District, setting up a competitive House race as Republicans try to claim a majority in the chamber.
Larkin, a 2020 Washington Republican gubernatorial candidate, secured a second-place finish on Friday night as more mail-in ballots were tallied.Candidates in the all-party primary, in which the top two vote-getters go on to the general election regardless of party identification, also included Army veteran Jesse Jensen, who ran a failed campaign against Schrier in 2020, and King County councilmember Reagan Dunn, also a former federal prosecutor whose mother previously represented the district for more than a decade.

Schrier, who also won a spot on the November ballot in the district’s all-party primary, has sought to cast herself as a pragmatist as the lines of her district shifted to be friendlier to Republicans. However, she has also sought to highlight her status as “the only pro-choice woman doctor” in the House after the Supreme Court reversed its ruling in Roe v. Wade earlier this summer.
The Republicans in the race sought to tie Schrier to President Joe Biden, high inflation, and rising gas prices.

The race will likely be competitive. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee included Schrier in its Frontline incumbent protection program. She is the only Democrat to hold the seat since its creation in the 1980s.
Flipping the district would be a gain for Republicans in their effort to win a House majority they lost in 2018.Midterms 2022 News Washington House Democrats House Republicans

Juliana Miller wins TUF 30 finale with TKO of Brogan Walker at UFC Vegas 59 (Video)
Brogan Walker met Juliana Miller to finish off the women’s Ultimate Fighter 30 finale.
Brogan Walker and Juliana Miller collided at UFC Vegas 59 to close out one of two Ultimate Fighter finales. The two women have vastly different paths to the finals, with Walker having been an Invicta veteran, and Miller coming in relatively inexperienced with only five pro fights.
The first round saw Miller taking control on the ground for well over three minutes, and while some strikes were exchanged, that was about it. Though, following the first round, Walker and Miller got a bit chippy, showing just how personal this tournament has become for them.
Walker and Miller started off the second round with far more fireworks, throwing some nice shots at one another before ending up on the ground, exchanging submission attempts.

Juliana Miller would take control in the third round at UFC Vegas 59
Round three would be a lot of the same, with a brief exchange on their feet before Walker tried to get Miller in a clinch, but ended up getting taken down to her back. There would be no scramble this time, as Miller controlled the action and pace with a steady barrage of strikes from on top.
Miller would get the win with the third-round TKO stoppage, winning the women’s flyweights side of the Ultimate Fighter 30.Next: UFC Vegas 59: Thiago Santos vs. Jamahal Hill results [UPDATED LIVE] UFC Vegas 59: Thiago Santos vs. Jamahal Hill takes place on Aug. 6, 2022, live from the UFC APEX.
