There’s still a handful of Republicans left in Congress who openly supported the Democrats in targeting President Trump.
But there will be far less of them left come next January.
And now, one top RINO is on the verge of losing re-election and getting thrown out of office by her own constituents.
The RINO caucus of the House of Representatives is about to get a lot smaller.
After a series of retirements and primary defeats, there’s now only a handful of liberal Republicans left in Congress who openly worked with Democrats to impeach President Trump and target other Conservatives during their time in office.
The most famous of these is Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who is on the verge of losing her own primary later this month.
But there’s another top RINO in Washington State that may be on the way out the door.
Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler represents Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, and is one of the only Republicans to hold a seat along the Pacific Coast.
But despite holding a district that is safely in Republican hands, she voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump.
What’s more, she is also regarded as a close political ally of Liz Cheney.
But recent returns from the still-evolving Washington primary conducted earlier in August suggest that Herrera Beutler may be on the verge of losing it all.
With around 90% of the vote counted, her main challenger, Joe Kent, is just a few hundred votes away from overtaking her in the multi-candidate jungle primary.
The winner between the two will go on to face Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez in November. With the district as red as it is, there should be little difficulty in winning the general election.
That means the winner of the GOP primary between Herrera Beutler and Kent will likely end up representing the seat in January.
And despite the fact that Kent continues to trail Herrera Beutler by less than 300 votes, the gap has been narrowing in recent days.
After initially being down by more than 10,000 votes, Kent closed the deficit fast as election day results began to be counted.
And with only a few thousand votes left, it’s clear that Kent has momentum and could very well secure the win once 100% of all ballots are tabulated.
If Herrera Beutler should lose, that would leave Liz Cheney as one of the only pro-impeachment Republicans left in the House of Representatives.
And it would be a fitting end for her career.
That’s because just like Cheney, Herrera Beutler has zero excuses for her own liberal voting record.
Democrats routinely use RINOs like her and Cheney to argue that any Left-wing legislation they pass through Congress has “bipartisan support.”
But should Herrera Beutler fall, Pelosi and her allies will no longer be able to rely on these fake Republicans to continue to give cover for her own radical agenda.
What’s more, Cheney herself is set to face the voters in just a few days, and all signs indicate that she is almost certainly about to lose her own primary race.
The Washington primary results are expected to be finalized in the coming days, while Wyoming’s own primary is set to be held on August 16.
