On Tuesday, three Republicans who supported impeachment will face opponents supported by Trump.

The political futures of three House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump last year for his part in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack will be decided by voters on Tuesday.

The recent test of the former president’s sway in GOP elections saw Reps. Peter Meijer, R-Mich., Jaime Herrera Beutler, and Dan Newhouse facing up against Trump-backed primary opponents.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., will be the only House Republican who backed impeachment to be up for election after this Tuesday. Cheney, who serves as vice chair of the committee looking into the tragic riot and Trump’s attempts to rig the 2020 election, has faced particularly challenging circumstances at his residence in Wyoming. The election occurs on August 16.

The Republican representatives of Ohio Anthony Gonzalez, New York John Katko, Michigan Fred Upton, and Illinois Adam Kinzinger all decided to leave office at the end of their terms. Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., survived a primary challenge that same month despite Trump not endorsing him in the race. Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., lost to a Trump-backed opponent in June.

Meijer, Beutler, and Newhouse have all outraised their Trump-backers, like other impeachment advocates have done. According to federal campaign finance reports, Meijer has raised more over $2 million more than his opponent, John Gibbs, in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District. By mid-July, Meijer had raised $2.77 million, while Gibbs had received $480,000.

Beutler outraised Trump-backed rival Joe Kent by about $1.3 million in the 3rd Congressional District of Washington; as of mid-July, Beutler had raised $3.5 million, while Kent had raised $2.2 million.

And through the middle of last month, Newhouse raised roughly $1.6 million in the 4th Congressional District of Washington, compared to $310,000 raised by Trump-backed rival Loren Culp.

Beutler and Newhouse may benefit from the open, nonpartisan primary system in Washington, where the top two vote-getters, regardless of party membership, proceed to the general election in the fall, according to those closely following the contests.

In each district, there are more than six people running for office, with Republicans running more frequently than Democrats. In the fight for Beutler, Heidi St. John, a Republican running on a pro-Trump platform, and Kent could split enough votes to propel Beutler into the fall election.

The contests are still “very, very competitive in both districts,” according to Caleb Heimlich, chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, who spoke with NBC News.

He mentioned that approximately $2.5 million in outside, independent funding has flowed into Beutler’s area for the race’s final two-week sprint, with most of it going to Kent and some going to support St. John.

You simply have a different electorate without a closed party primary, he claimed. “There are so a variety of factors that affect that campaign. Additionally, you must compete for all of the district’s voters.”

Each candidate has a different amount of experience being elected in their areas. Meijer won her first election to Congress in 2020 by a margin of 6 points over Democrat Hillary Scholten. In 2020, Beutler, who was first elected in 2010, outperformed her Democratic opponent by 13 points. And Newhouse, who was initially elected in 2014, prevailed by over 33 points in his most recent race.

Meanwhile, Gibbs, Kent, and Culp have all supported the previous president’s fabrications about a rigged election and falsely asserted that President Joe Biden’s victory was invalid.

These candidates have a close relationship with the former president, and they frequently mention his and their allies’ support. Meijer, Beutler, and Newhouse have attempted to divert attention away from their support for impeachment and toward regional problems and general concerns like inflation.

Meijer stated in June that “serious times call for serious leadership,” referring to a campaign ad in which he discussed battling inflation, controlling government expenditure, and reducing the flow of migrants at the Mexican border.

Democratic House members have reacted negatively to Democrats’ efforts to support Meijer’s opponent. Last month, a TV campaign by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee highlighted Gibbs’ connections to the former president. The 30-second commercial, according to Meijer’s team, “clearly” shows that Democrats would much prefer to run against Gibbs than Meijer in the fall.

In the fall, only Meijer’s district is thought to be competitive. While Beutler’s and Newhouse’s districts are both classed as solidly Republican, the 3rd Congressional District in Michigan is classified by the neutral elections analyst The Cook Political Report as a pure toss-up contest.

According to Jason Roe, a former executive director of the Michigan GOP, the primary system in Michigan could potentially be advantageous for Meijer.

Voters in Michigan have the choice to cast their ballots in either the Democratic or Republican primaries. Additionally, given the dearth of competitive Democratic primaries in Michigan this cycle, more crossover voters may decide to support the Republican candidate.

Well, the conventional view is that he’s a dead man walking, Roe said, adding, “I give him an outside shot still.” Roe was fired from his job last year for declaring that Trump “blew it” and that the 2020 election wasn’t rigged.

Roe called Meijer’s recent votes in favor of a gun safety package and a bill that would codify legal same-sex marriage nationwide a “major miscalculation” ahead of a race when he is already facing criticism for opposing Trump.

Roe remarked, “He might have gotten away with one of them.” “But you complete them both. Boy, doesn’t he start to resemble the RINO (Republican in name only) that they claim he is when you combine impeachment with a primary?”

The elections in his state will test how much those impeachment votes still matter, according to Heimlich.

He referred to the support for Trump’s impeachment by Beutler and Newhouse as “a lot of Republicans being frustrated by that.” “The impeachment vote that took place, oh my goodness, 18 months ago? Is it still the core problem?”
