The results are in and the news is great for Democrats in the 2017 election! They not only did we win the governorships in New Jersey and Virginia but in another tremendous victory, Democrat Danica Roem, a 33-year-old openly transgender former local news reporter made history by winning a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates race. She defeated Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall (R), who had co-sponsored a 2006 constitutional amendment in Virginia banning same-sex marriage that prompted LGBTQ activists to dub him “Bigot Bob.” Roem’s win in is an additional big rebuke to the Trump administration’s open hostility toward the transgender community.
