Looking to support current Democratic Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom as he runs for re-election this fall? Well now, if you like, you can give to his campaign in bitcoin.

Newsom is one of a handful of politicians accepting the virtual currency. Earlier this month the Federal Election Committee voted unanimously to allow bitcoin for political donations. 

For more on what this means for the future of politics, we're joined by Matea Gold, who covers money and politics for the Washington Post.
