Dan Newhouse is a former Director of Agriculture for Washington state. He was first appointed by Governor Christine Gregoire on February 18, 2009. He previously served in the Washington House of Representatives from 2003 to 2009.[1]

Newhouse won election to the U.S. House to represent the 4th Congressional District of Washington.[2][3][4] Clint Didier (R) and Newhouse were the top two vote-getters in the blanket primary.[5] In a race that remained too close to call for four days past the election, Newhouse narrowly edged out Didier in the general election.[6] Didier has not conceded to Newhouse. He said, "We’re waiting for every vote to be counted."[7]
