Additional Information: 

Carol Moseley Braun was a United States Senator from Illinois. She held the seat for six years, from 1993 to 1999. A native of Chicago, Moseley Braun was the first female African-American to ever serve in the U.S. Senate and the first female senator from Illinois. This button promotes her first senatorial campaign in 1992, upon the conclusion of which she became the first woman to ever defeat an incumbent U.S. senator in an election (Alan J. Dixon). After her term in office, she was appointed Ambassador to New Zealand by President Bill Clinton from 1999 to 2001.
