Rep. Cheri Bustos, the chairwoman of the House Democrats’ campaign arm, pulled out of a fundraiser for a colleague because of their divergent views on abortion.
Bustos was scheduled to appear at a reelection campaign event for Rep. Daniel Lipinski, a fellow Illinois Democrat who is facing a primary challenge from the left.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lipinski is one of the last congressional Democrats to oppose abortion rights. Normally, a top Democrat appearing at one of his fundraisers would be little noticed, but abortion issues are incredibly fraught as some conservative states move to outlaw abortion in an effort to overturn Roe v. Wade.
