Challenger Joe Kent is now within striking distance of winning the primary in the Washington State primary election against Never-Trumper Jaime Herrera Beutler.
Joe Kent clawed his way back into the race after Tuesday’s vote and is only 257 votes down in the latest count.
According to pollster Richard Baris, Joe Kent is assured to be the winner. There are 35,000 votes left to count from election day. Kent is predicted to win a vast majority of those votes.
That drop was the coin toss. Is it possible the next does NOT net the last two drops and less than 250 votes?
About as likely as me quitting my job tomorrow and winning the power ball on Monday. https://t.co/Y0L4A6caz0

Saturday morning on The War Room, Joe Kent told Steve Bannon that Kevin McCarthy and the GOP establishment ran $4.5 million in dirty ads against him in the last two weeks of the race.
Joe Kent: $45.5 million just in the last 12 days. A couple million before that… McCarthy directly gave her at least gave her $150,000 during the entire course of the election. That’s just going directly from his PAC going into her PAC. And from all the other GOP establishment PACs probably another $2.5 million right there.
Steve Bannon: Were the GOP establishment PACs, were those the ones doing the really nasty personal attacks on you?
Joe Kent: Absolutely, And they’re already starting to crop up going against Anthony Sabatini in Florida, as well.
