And the good news just keeps on coming.
“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.
Kent has gained ground every day, in a trendline that points to him surpassing Herrera Beutler when more votes are counted next week.
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.”
As of Friday evening, Herrera Beutler had 22.6% of the vote to Kent’s 22.5% — a margin of just 257 votes. Kent had trailed by 1,945 on Thursday. An estimated 30,000 ballots remain to be counted in Clark County, the district’s population center, which will continue counting votes again on Monday.”
That’s right. It just keeps getting worse for the Republican impeachment voters. Let this be a lesson for all turncoats. The days of betraying your voters with impunity are over. Word is getting out. The people are angry. Do your job or get out.
