California Gov. Gavin Newsomm (D) has chosen to replace the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat with Democrat Laphonza Butler. Butler has a long history of abortion activism and is currently the president of a pro-abortion political action committee, Emily’s Choice. Newsom noted that Butler is the first black lesbian to openly serve in the Senate. Butler will serve in the role until at least the 2024 election.
