Rep. Barbara Lee says California Gov. Gavin Newsom's plan for Senate seat is "insulting"
Rep. Barbara Lee, one of the Democrats running for Sen. Dianne Feinstein's seat next year, is blasting California Gov. Gavin Newsom after the governor said he would only make an "interim" appointment to Feinstein's seat, selecting someone who is not running for the seat in 2024. Newsom has said he would appoint a Black woman to fill the role, and he says he still intends to do so.
