I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we lift Laphonza Butler up before You. Bring her to saving faith if she does not know You. May she vote in ways that honor You during these next few months.

As candidates gear up to run for the vacant California Senate seat, Newsom has appointed someone to temporarily fill it.

From Breitbart. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will reportedly appoint EMILY’s List President Laphonza Butler to fill the Senate seat that Dianne Feinstein vacated upon her recent death.

“Newsom is moving swiftly to name the next senator, two days after Feinstein’s death and just as a perilously split Congress narrowly averted a government shutdown. Senate Democrats are in need of every vote in the closely divided chamber,” reported Politico on Sunday. …

Anthony York, an adviser to Newsom, told Politico that Newsom would make his appointment so as not to shift the momentum of the current Democrats running for the seat in 2024. Butler would have to battle it out with the likes of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) if she wants to secure the seat again for another six years. …

As Breitbart News reported, Gavin Newsom had previously said he would only appoint a caretaker to replace Feinstein in the event of her death. …

Since multiple Democrats have aimed for Feinstein’s seat, including Reps. Katie Porter (D-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA), Newsom said that it would be unfair to appoint someone who would run for reelection. …

Butler would be the first openly LGBTQ member to represent the Golden State in the U.S. Senate. People on social media noted that her X profile actually listed Maryland as her state of residence, not California.
