On Tuesday the first transgender candidate in Virginia’s history won the Democrat primary in Â House DistrictÂ 13. Thirty-two year old Danica Roem easilyÂ won her raceÂ against three other candidates. Â There are only two transgender elected officials in statehouses across the country.
Ms. Roem will run against Delegate Bob Marshall, a 20-year incumbent. This will be quite a race, between a conservative Republican and a very liberal, transgender, Democrat.
More on this race here,Â here and here.Â Â The Washington Post already loves Roem and they are not fans of Delegate Marshall. Â
