  US Congress, Dist 3        May Trafalgar Poll,   FEC Campaign Reports 3/31   NWPI 6/7   CCT 2/22   CCT 1/22    CCT 1/18

Incumbent Beutler has a long history of opposing Trump, who was the most pro life president ever.  LifePac recommends Joe Kent as a replacement.  The top two primary candidates will advance to the general election, so best outcome would be Kent and Democrat Gluesenkamp-Perez having more votes than Beutler.  Kent is polling highest among conservative candidates, making Kraft and St. John spoiler candidates.  Video where candidates promised to withdraw.
