OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Republican Rep. Dan Newhouse, who voted to impeach Donald Trump over the Jan. 6 insurrection, appeared well positioned Friday to advance to the general election in his Washington state primary, while fellow Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, who took the same vote, fought to hold off a Trump-backed opponent.

Democrat Marie Perez was the top vote getter in the 3rd Congressional District in southwestern Washington, with 31% of the vote. Herrera Beutler, who had about 24% on Tuesday night, dropped to just over 23% by Thursday night, less than 2,000 votes ahead of Joe Kent - a former Green Beret endorsed by Trump.

Because Washington is a vote-by-mail state and ballots just need to be in by Election Day, it often takes days to learn final results in close races as ballots arrive at county election offices throughout the week.

Updated vote tallies were expected late Friday afternoon in the 3rd District's largest county, Clark, which had an estimated 45,000 votes left to count. Counties have until Aug. 16 to finish their count and for canvassing boards to certify the results, followed by certification by the secretary of state by Aug. 19.

A mandatory recount would occur if the margin of votes between the No. 2 and No. 3 candidates is less than half of 1% and closer than 2,000 votes.

Under Washington's primary system, all candidates run on the same ballot, and the top two vote getters in each of Tuesday's races advance to the November election, regardless of party.

Of the 10 House Republicans who voted for Trump's impeachment, four opted not to run for reelection. Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer was defeated in a primary Tuesday by Trump-endorsed John Gibbs and Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina lost to a Trump-endorsed challenger in June. Rep. David Valadao of California - which has an open primary like Washington - survived a primary challenge. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is bracing for defeat in her Aug. 16 primary against a Trump-backed rival.

Newhouse, the four-term incumbent in the 4th Congressional District in central Washington, had about 26% of the vote , followed by Democrat Doug White, who had just over 25%. Loren Culp, a Trump-endorsed former small town police chief who lost the 2020 governor's race to Democrat Jay Inslee, was at about 21 21%.

In another key match in the 8th Congressional District, incumbent Democratic Rep. Kim Schrier advanced to the November ballot with more than 47% of the vote, and will face former state attorney general candidate Matt Larkin in November.

With more than 17% of the vote, Larkin edged out King County Council Member Reagan Dunn, a former federal prosecutor whose mother once held the seat. Dunn conceded the race Thursday. The district is a key target of GOP efforts to retake control of the House.

    Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.

    We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.
    That’s not what you expected, was it.
    Finally, All things come to those who wait is a good aphorism we’re all familiar with.
    From there, you can build your story around it.
    How do aphorisms differ from adages and proverbs.
    Brevity is the key.
    The meaning.
    See for yourself.
    Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
    The complete quote was, A Jack of all trades and master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.
    It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
    Build a storyline around that saying.
    That’s why aphorisms, adages, and proverbs are synonyms for each other.
    If you do, you agree with George Herbert’s famous aphorism from his book, Outlandish Proverbs.

    Do you believe that a penny saved is a penny earned.
    This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
    Examples of Aphorism in Film
    Have you ever felt frustrated when other people didn’t meet your expectations.
    He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
    They’re easy to remember and pass down through generations because they’re concise.
    And then.
    Don’t judge a book by its cover.
    Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.
    It reminds us to take precautionary measures, so we don’t end up with bad results.
    Remember that.
    We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.
    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
    Why is this stuff important.
    Aphoristic statements also appear in everyday life, such as daily speeches made by politicians and leaders.
    Are you in.

    Another aphorism that’s adapted is, Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

    Aphorism Examples in Everyday Speech
    That’s not what you expected, was it.
    This quote came from Wales, first appearing in an 1866 publication.
    Give it a try!
    Aphorisms are so common that we hardly think twice about them.
    Examples of Aphorism in Literature
    Speaking of being safe, that’s another aphorism example that you’ve probably heard before.
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    He once stated, If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
    They’re easy to remember and pass down through generations because they’re concise.
    As they say, Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
