    Rep. Dan Newhouse survived the first round of a Republican primary challenge in Washington's 4th Congressional District, advancing to the November ballot in a race that was a test of political fortunes for GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. Newhouse managed to emerge from Washington’s all-party primary with a narrow lead ahead of Democratic candidate Doug White. Newhouse's biggest political foe, though, was another Republican running in the Aug. 2 all-party primary, Loren Culp. Updated results Friday night showed Culp in third place, and out of the running. That makes Newhouse a rare House Republican in 2022 who voted for Trump over his actions (and inactions) surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riots likely to hold his seat. Newhouse and White will face off again in November, the district is strongly Republican. Newhouse has represented the deep-red district, which encompasses a large swath of central Washington from the Oregon state line to the U.S.-Canada border, since 2015, and easily won reelection in 2020.

    Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger blasted the Democratic Party on Wednesday morning after the House majority's campaign arm successfully tipped the scales in a Michigan GOP primary race. 'The [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] ought to be ashamed of themselves,' the Illinois lawmaker told CNN's New Day, referencing House Democrats' formal war chest. 'Thankfully some members of Congress, Democrats, have spoken out and said they're disgusted. I respect that.' Kinzinger is one of four House Republicans who announced they are retiring this year after voting to impeach Donald Trump over the Capitol riot, out of 10 total.  Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer became the second of the set to lose re-election on Tuesday night. He was narrowly defeated by former Trump administration official John Gibbs. Meijer accused Democrats of hypocrisy in an essay published by Common Sense where he highlighted the thousands of dollars his House colleagues who lauded his impeachment vote were now funneling in to defeat him. 'Watching this unraveling inside my party has been utterly bewildering,' Meijer wrote. 'The only thing that has been more nauseating has been the capacity...
    Arizona Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters, a venture capitalist and military veteran who has been accused of espousing white nationalist beliefs, sailed to victory on Tuesday night with an endorsement from Donald Trump. He'll now face incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Kelly in November's midterm election Donald Trump has been having a field day celebrating his litany of successful endorsements in Tuesday night's primary races, boasting to followers on his Truth Social app from the early hours of Wednesday and throughout the morning. Voters in Michigan, Missouri, Kansas, Washington and Arizona went to the polls for several key primary races that will define the next three months ahead of the November midterm elections. On the GOP side, it was a referendum on whether voters want a Trump-led future or a return to more establishment principles.  Trump bragged he 'ran the entire board' with his endorsements.  In Michigan, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the ex-president over the US Capitol riot lost to a former Trump administration official named John Gibbs. A Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate also bested a...

    A South Carolina candidate's campaign received a significant boost in popularity due to Donald Trump's endorsement, an internal poll found. Former state Rep. Russell Fry's House campaign bumped in popularity among Republican voters by 30% after the former president gave his seal of approval to the campaign in February and then stumped for him at a rally Saturday. An internal campaign poll revealed that prior to Trump's endorsement, incumbent Rep. Tom Rice had a narrow lead over Fry, which the challenger has since massively overtaken in recent weeks. "Survey results consistently confirm that Rice is in serious trouble," the report read. "In large part due to Rice's impeachment vote, a majority of voters do not support him and have found a conservative alternative in Russell Fry." HAS TRUMP'S SEAL LOST ITS APPEAL?

    After the Jan. 6 insurrection, House Republicans appeared divided. Those who objected to the 2020 election results seemed at odds with the Republicans who strayed from the MAGA pack—the lawmakers who upheld President Joe Biden’s victory, supported a bipartisan investigation of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, and, most treacherously of all in their minds, voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump. But you wouldn’t know it from the receipts. In the months since the attack, committees affiliated with 63 of the 139 House Republicans who objected to the election results (the so-called “Sedition Caucus”) have given more than $650,000 to GOP counterparts who certified Trump’s defeat, federal filings show. The recipients even include two GOP lawmakers who impeached Trump for inciting an insurrection—Reps. David Valadao (R-CA) and John Katko (R-NY), who got more than $100,000 combined. More than $200,000 of the total came from House leadership—Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who in May replaced MAGA pariah Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as party chair. McCarthy, Scalise, and Stefanik all objected...
    Former President Donald Trump attacked a retiring House Republican on Friday and touted his own endorsement of a primary rival in the district as the cause. In a statement, Trump said Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez will retire because of his “ill-informed and otherwise very stupid impeachment vote against the sitting President of the United States, me.” ANTHONY GONZALEZ, HOUSE REPUBLICAN WHO VOTED TO IMPEACH TRUMP, WILL NOT SEEK REELECTION IN OHIO Trump, who backed Max Miller, one of his former aides in the primary, said Miller has his “Complete and Total Endorsement.” Gonzalez announced Thursday evening he would not seek reelection to the House next year, telling the New York Times that threats faced by his family since his impeachment vote and his disillusionment with the Republican Party contributed to the decision. He said a primary against Miller would have been “brutally hard,” but he believes he could have won reelection. “Politically, the environment is so toxic, especially in our own party right now,” Gonzalez told the New York Times. “You can fight...
    Republican Max Miller is poised to ride an endorsement from Donald Trump to victory over Rep. Anthony Gonzalez in a GOP primary in Ohio, a contest unfolding as a clear test of the former president’s influence with grassroots conservatives. Miller, a 32-year-old former Trump White House aide, was endorsed by the former president soon after announcing for the Cleveland-area 16th Congressional District. Trump was intent on getting revenge on Gonzalez, a second-term congressman among the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach him in the waning days of his administration for allegedly inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Trump’s swift endorsement of Miller has, so far, kept other Republicans who might want to challenge Gonzalez, 36, out of the race. Party insiders are skeptical that will change, setting up a one-on-one contest between pro-Trump and anti-Trump candidates on track to reveal how much punch the former president has in GOP primaries post-White House. “Gonzalez is on life support,” a high-ranking Ohio Republican said. The Gonzalez campaign declined to comment. TRUMP-ALIGNED VIRGINIA REPUBLICAN WON'T PLAY INDEPENDENT SPOILER TO PARTY'S...

Trump issued a warm endorsement Friday for Max Miller, 32, a former White House aide and campaign official who plans to primary two-term GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio. Gonzalez was one of 10 GOP representatives who joined the Democrats’ second impeachment effort in January. “Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16th district because he does not represent their interest or their heart,” Trump wrote in an email blast to followers. The statement made good on Trump’s Feb. 16 threat to target congressional Republicans who have crossed him — an effort that could solidify his hold on the party, even after he lost the presidency. “We want brilliant,...

    (CNN)At first, his colleagues thought he made a mistake. Rep. Tom Rice, a South Carolina Republican, voted to impeach former President Donald Trump on January 13, a week after objecting to his defeat, the only member of Congress to do so.Before he walked out of the Capitol, his phone rang, according to Rice. On the other line was House Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who didn't think he actually intended to impeach the then-President. "I said, 'I pressed the right button,'" Rice recounted.But Trump supporters back home don't think he did. Rice now may be one of the few members of Congress to face a political price for that vote. In the following weeks, several Republicans have either launched campaigns or threatened to run against the five-term congressman, knowing that 59% of the Myrtle Beach-based district supported the former President over Joe Biden."There's a firestorm," said Katon Dawson, a former South Carolina GOP chairman and Rice ally. "South Carolina is big for Donald Trump."Read MoreBut Rice has no regrets. He spent the days preceding the vote "pulling everything I...
    Franklin Graham, the evangelical preacher and ardent supporter of President Trump, compared the 10 Republican lawmakers who voted in favor of impeachment on Wednesday to Judas, who betrayed Jesus Christ. In a lengthy Facebook post, Graham lashed out at the 10 members of Congress who joined the Democrats to impeach the president a second time - the only time in US history that a sitting commander-in-chief was impeached twice. ‘Shame, shame on the ten Republicans who joined with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in impeaching President Trump yesterday,’ Graham wrote on Thursday. He then added: ‘It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that Speaker Pelosi promised for this betrayal.’ According to the New Testament, Judas Iscariot, a disciple of Jesus, is said to have received 30 silver coins from the Pharisees in exchange for agreeing to hand him over before the Last Supper. Franklin Graham, the evangelical preacher and ardent supporter of President Trump, compared the 10 Republican lawmakers who voted in favor of impeachment on Wednesday to Judas, who betrayed Jesus Christ...
