Two races in Washington state could tip scales in Congress

Washington state ballot drop box

SEATTLE (AP) — Control of Congress could come down to one or two seats in Washington.

In the 8th Congressional District, incumbent Democratic Rep. Kim Schrier faces Republican Matt Larkin.

In the open seat in the 3rd Congressional District, Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez faces Trump-endorsed Republican Joe Kent, who edged out incumbent Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler in the state’s top two primary.

Herrera Beutler was among those targeted by former President Donald Trump for her impeachment vote following the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Washington’s congressional delegation currently comprises seven Democrats and three Republicans, and the remainder of the seats are considered safe for the incumbents.
