U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield is poised to become the next chair of the Congressional Black Caucus when the new U.S. Congress convenes in January.

Butterfield, a Democrat from Wilson who represents North Carolina’s 1st District, is expected to win an election as the 24th chair of the caucus on Wednesday.

The Congressional Black Caucus, established in 1971, says it is “the voice for people of color and vulnerable communities.”
