Republican Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley will take on longtime Democrat incumbent Patty Murray in November’s general election, after Smiley’s clean sweep in Tuesday’s primary election.
Although the results are not finalized, Smiley’s lead will be hard for other GOP competitors to overtake. As of Tuesday night, Tiffany Smiley won 31.96 percent of the vote, while Patty Murray won 54 percent. The candidate closest to Smiley is Republican Leon Lawson, who won 3.23 percent of the vote Tuesday night. As for other congressional races in the state, Trump-endorsed candidate Joe Kent is trailing behind Republican anti-Trump incumbent Jamie Herrera Beutler in Washington’s third congressional district, a Republican stronghold.
However, the race is close and Kent could overtake Herrera in the all-vote-by-mail state as early results show Herrera winning 24.48 percent of Tuesday night’s vote, compared to Kent winning 20.11 percent.
In Washington state’s fourth congressional district, Trump-endorsed candidate Loren Culp is trailing behind anti-Trump Republican and current house representative Dan Newhouse. Results show Newhouse leading on Tuesday night with 27.32 percent of the vote, compared to Culp winning 21.74 percent of the vote.
But perhaps the most competitive race is Washington’s eighth congressional district, where Republican candidates Matt Larkin and Raegan Dunn are neck-and-neck after Tuesday night’s results. Larkin is slightly leading with 15.89 percent of the vote, compared to Dunn winning 15.04 percent on election night.
The winner will take on Democratic representative Kim Schrier, who won the Democratic nominee, with hopes of flipping Washington’s eighth congressional district, a district that leans Republican until Schrier won her seat in 2018, and again in 2020.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
