The House of Representatives held a moment of silence for Congressmember John Lewis on the House floor Monday. Meanwhile, Georgia Democrats have selected state Senator Nikema Williams to appear on the November ballot for late Congressmember John Lewis’s seat. Williams says she considered Congressmember Lewis to be a friend and mentor. In 2018, she was arrested at a peaceful protest at the state Capitol demanding that all votes be counted in the hotly contested gubernatorial election. She is expected to handily win in November against Republican Angela Stanton-King, a reality-TV personality and author whom Trump pardoned after she was convicted for her role in a car theft ring.
