Transgender woman defeats anti-gay marriage Marshall-Newman amendment author for Virginia delegates seat; 7 transgender candidates win in US
In northern Virginia (13th district), male-female transgender candidate Danica Roem has defeated the social conservative Robert Marshall (from Marhsall-Newman amendment notoriety) to become Virginia’s first openly transgender elected official. The Hill has the story here.
Roem is a journalist, for the Gainesville Times and Prince William Times. It’s a little unusual for journalists to run for office and win!
