California Republican who voted to impeach Trump wins re-election

Republicans had won a majority in the House last Wednesday. Valadao’s victory gives them a 219-212 advantage in the next House, with four races still to be decided, one in Alaska (where the Democrat is ahead), one in Colorado (where the Republican is barely ahead but the Democrat has conceded) and two others in California (where the Republicans are slightly ahead).

Of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump in early 2021, the only other winner was the Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.), who won decisively earlier this month after surviving a challenge from Trump-backed Republican Loren Culp in a multiparty primary. Valadao had also emerged from a multiparty primary.

Representatives. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), Tom Rice (RS.C.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) and Pierre Meijer (R-Mich.) all lost their primaries. The other four – Reps. Antoine González (R-Ohio), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), John Katko (RN.Y.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) — did not seek another warrant.
