Republican Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler is just that — a Republican. She’s pro-NRA, and pro-life. But she voted to re-elect John Boehner as speaker, and she has been known to support bills that are bipartisan. Those are among some of the objections to Herrera Beutler that Clark County Republicans harbor. They may vote at their next meeting to censure her.

We’ll discuss the context and implications of this story with OPB’s Southwest Washington-based reporter, Conrad Wilson.
