About The Race
Rep. Dan Newhouse is facing a challenge from a familiar foe in the race to represent Washington’s 4th Congressional District, but the GOP incumbent is already making plans for a fourth term representing a wide swath of Central Washington.
WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives on Monday passed two bills backed by Northwest lawmakers that aim to combat the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, a move advocates called an important step toward solving a complex problem.

Dan Newhouse, a former state agriculture director and lawmaker, was first elected to Congress in 2014. His wife of 35 years, whom he said was his biggest cheerleader, died in 2017. Newhouse has since remarried, and has earned the trust of the district through his thoughtful approach to lawmaking, supporters said.
The congresswoman said she’s been able to focus more on crafting bills after stepping down from her position as chair of the House Republican Conference a little more than a year ago.

Republicans have asked that the nation’s highest court uphold a Louisiana law that requires abortion providers to obtain admitting privileges at local hospitals. The Supreme Court threw out a similar Texas law less than four years ago. But Democrats see a pattern of eroding reproductive and privacy rights for women that will once again be fought in the courts.
The former defense secretary avoided his reportedly tumultuous tenure in President Donald Trump’s White House. Instead, he offered an optimistic view of America that he said would be well-served by preparing young people to make sacrifices for its preservation.
