Trump Backs Challenger to Unseat 'Pathetic RINO' Newhouse

By    |   Saturday, 13 April 2024 06:33 PM EDT

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has thrown his support behind a challenger to unseat Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach the former president in 2021.

Jerrod Sessler, a U.S. Navy veteran and former NASCAR driver, will attempt to win over voters from Washington's 4th Congressional District. Newhouse is one of only two Republicans who remain following the Trump impeachment vote, with the others either losing reelection bids or opting not to run. Rep. David Valadao of California is the other.

"Jerrod Sessler is a fantastic candidate and will be a GREAT Congressman for Washington State's 4th Congressional District,'" Trump posted on Truth Social. "A Navy Veteran, Entrepreneur, Loving Father and Husband, Jerrod will fight hard every day to secure the Border, stand for the Rule of Law, strengthen our Military, take care of our Vets, Defend our Nation, and protect our always under siege Second Amendment.

"He is running against a weak and pathetic RINO [Republican in name only] named Newhouse, who voted to, for no reason, Impeach me," Trump continued. "Newhouse has to go! Jerrod Sessler is MAGA all the way and has my Complete and Total Endorsement – He will never let you down!!!"

Sessler responded "#honored" to Trump's post, sharing it on X. Sessler labels himself a "Christian, Family man, Veteran, Rancher/Farmer, Business, Job Creator, Fmr NASCAR" on his X account.

According to Sessler's campaign website, he has been endorsed by retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former national security adviser in the Trump administration; Republican campaign adviser Roger Stone; and Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers.

This is the second time Trump has tried to unseat Newhouse. He backed challenger Loren Culp in 2022.
