Tuesday night, most people assumed that the Republican primary for Washington’s Third Congressional District was over as Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wa.) took a sizable lead.
Beutler is one of ten Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump in the wake of the unrest at the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally on January 6th.
Three days after the primary, 15% of the vote is still out, what some have estimated to be as many as 40,000 votes.

Truth be told, @joekent16jan19 looks at this moment to have the best chance yet, but it really is a pure coin toss.
He don’t know. Nobody knows but God in a race like this at this particular moment.
So full of shit.
