Jaime Herrera Beutler’s Fight for Another Term
My colleague Harvest has an in-depth profile on Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler on the website this morning. You can read the full piece here. Below are a few key moments from Harvest’s interview with Herrera Beutler, a Washington state Republican who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump after the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
She remembers January 6 vividly.
In an interview with The Dispatch, Herrera Beutler recounts evacuating the House floor as rioters broke down barricades and fought their way into the Capitol. After holing up in Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ office, she decided to try to get back to where her staff waited in her own office.
