Early life and career

Newhouse was born in Sunnyside, east of Yakima. He was raised on a farm there by his parents, Ruth Martin and Irv Newhouse, with four sisters and a brother. His father’s family was Dutch. His parents and all of his siblings graduated from Washington State University. Newhouse’s father served in the Washington State House and Senate for a total of 34 years, retiring in 1998.

Newhouse graduated from Washington State with a bachelor of science degree in agricultural economics in 1977. In college, Dan was a member of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. He also is a graduate of the Washington Agriculture and Forestry Leadership Program.

Early career

He served four terms in the Washington House of Representatives from 2003 through 2009, representing the 15th district in eastern Yakima County, his father’s old district. In 2009, Christine Gregoire, then the Governor of Washington, appointed Newhouse to head the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Newly-elected governor Jay Inslee did not re-appoint Newhouse as agriculture director in 2013.

U.S. House of Representatives

In February 2014, Newhouse entered the Republican primary for Washington’s 4th congressional district. The incumbent, fellow 10-term Republican Doc Hastings, did not run in the 2014 elections.

 He and fellow Republican Clint Didier advanced to the November election after finishing in the top two in the August primary election, marking the first time that two Republican candidates would square off in a general election since the state adopted the “top two” primary system.

However, the 4th has long been the most conservative district in Washington, and it was very likely in any event that Hastings would be succeeded by another Republican.

The race on November 4 was very close, and was seen as a battle between the factions of the GOP; Newhouse is considered a mainstream Republican, while Didier openly identified with the Tea Party movement. On November 4, 2014, Newhouse defeated Didier, by a margin of 51%-49%

Newhouse owns a 600-acre (240 ha) farm in Sunnyside that produces hops, tree fruit, grapes, and alfalfa. His first wife Carol died of cancer in 2017. They have two adult children.

In 2018, Newhouse married his second wife, Joan Galvin, in a small ceremony which took place at the Congressional Prayer Room in the United States Capitol building.
