As with several of his Republican colleagues who voted to impeach President Trump earlier this month, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Sunnyside/ Yakima) has already drawn a 2022 Republican challenger. State Rep. Brad Klippert (R-Kennewick) announced his intention yesterday to run for Congress.
Since Washington uses a jungle primary system, there is no partisan nomination election. Therefore, it is possible for members of the same party to advance to the general election, placing Mr. Klippert in a different position than some of the other challengers directly opposing incumbents within their party.
