Washington state Rep. Dan Newhouse, one of just 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump in the wake of the Capitol insurrection, has advanced to the general election in the state's 4th Congressional District, according to a race call by The Associated Press.

Newhouse will face Democrat Doug White in November's general election in the solidly Republican district.

Washington's top-two primary system puts all candidates on one ballot and advances the top two vote-getters to the general election, regardless of party.

Newhouse was one of three House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump who was on Tuesday's ballot.

Fellow Washington state member of Congress Jaime Herrera Beutler is looking to advance in the 3rd District; that race hasn't been called, and Herrera Beutler is battling it out for the second spot in the general election with Trump-backed Joe Kent.

And in Michigan, Rep. Peter Meijer was narrowly defeated by former Trump administration official John Gibbs in that state's Grand Rapids-based 3rd District.

As part of his ongoing revenge tour to oust the Republicans who voted to impeach him, Trump endorsed Gibbs, Kent and Loren Culp, who is in third in the 4th District.
