Mid-Columbia Congressman Dan Newhouse married Joan Galvin in front of family and friends in the U.S. Capitol following the conclusion of Friday’s House votes.
The Rev. Patrick J. Conroy, chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives, officiated the ceremony in the Congressional Prayer Room.
“I am overjoyed and truly blessed to be starting this new chapter of my life with Joan,” Newhouse, R-Sunnyside, said in a statement issued by his office.
The groom is a farmer who was re-elected to a third term representing Washington’s Fourth Congressional District when he swept every county earlier this month.

Newhouse was widowed in May 2017 when his wife of 34 years, Carol, died after being treated for cancer.
