Back in April 2021, you first met Joe Kent here on YourSurvivalGuy.com, when I told you he was running against the anti-Trump Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler. You learned more about Kent in August when I touted his appearances on Tucker Carlson’s “Tucker Carlson Today.” Now, Your Survival Guy wants to offer Kent and his team a huge congratulations for his defeat of Jaime Herrara Beutler in the primary. Kent will go on to face the district’s Democratic candidate, Marie Gluesenkamp-Perez, in the general election. OPB reports on Herrera Beutler’s concession, writing:
Incumbent U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler conceded Tuesday afternoon, calling her six terms in Southwest Washington “an honor.” Her hold on the primary’s final slot slipped in the past week.
After a week of close ballot counts in which her chances to make the November ballot grew slimmer and slimmer, U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler conceded her bid for another term in Congress on Tuesday evening.
The congresswoman wrote in an prepared statement that it had been “an honor” to serve the 3rd Congressional District in Southwest Washington since she first won election in 2010. She conceded shortly after the last ballot counts in Clark County showed she likely can’t close a voting gap for the final spot on the November ballot. Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez secured the first-place finish in Washington’s top-two primary last week.
The Republican from Battle Ground, Washington, now joins several U.S. House Republicans whose political career ended shortly after they voted to impeach then-president Donald Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Watch Kent’s victory speech below.
