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.
