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.
