Transgender woman beats 13-term incumbent who authored bathroom-ban bill and referred to her as 'him' much of the campaign (but she would rather talk about rush hour traffic)
Democrat Danica Roem of Virginia, a former journalist, makes history as the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature
She defeated 13-term incumbent Bob Marshall, who has been in the legislature since 1992 and authored the state's anti-trans bathroom-ban bill
Roem focused on jobs, schools and, with particular fervor, northern Virginia's traffic congestion in her campaign She lives with her boyfriend, who she has not named, and his 9-year-old child whom she considers her stepdaughter. 'He'll be one of my constituents and I'm not going to attack my constituents,' said Roem after her win Andrea Jenkins became the first openly trans woman of color elected to the city council of a major city when she was elected to represent Ward 8 of Minneapolis
Democrat Danica Roem, a former journalist, is set to make history as the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature in the United States.
She unseated Republican Del. Bob Marshall, a 13-term incumbent and socially conservative lawmaker who proudly called himself Virginia's 'chief homophobe.'
Roem, 33, openly discussed her gender identity during her campaign, but it was far from her focus.
Instead, she focused on jobs, schools and, with particular fervor, northern Virginia's traffic congestion.
Marshall meanwhile spent the entire campaign referring to Roem as 'him,' but after her win she refused to attack her opponent, saying: 'He'll be one of my constituents and I'm not going to attack my constituents.'

It’s all gone to the Toilet
Photos of trans-mutant self-mutilators are within. UK Daily Mail always has good photos.
Get out of our trans way you stale pale males!

If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
There are blue and red states but is there a color for freak states? Like Virginia and Kali?
Hmmm. Is this entity a male to female or female to male variant. What do the chromosomes say? Just wonderin’. Not really.
The GOP is fine with running defense until they can help the Democrats get back in control of the House to try and thwart President Trump.
We cannot allow that to happen though, I am still surprisingly upbeat, they may have flipped VA but we have been working hard in Wisconsin and Michigan.
It's not about throwing up your hands at the first set back.
President Trump has changed the rules.
Lazy conservatives. After 2016, they kicked back in their easy chairs and thought that this guy was likely some freak that no one would ever vote for.
Don’t feel sorry for them at all.
If “she’s” got a penis, “she” is a he.
Or as Mick Dundee said, “That guy is dressed up like a girl! He’s no Sheila!”
Amazing....elect someone to office with an obviously misfiring brain. What could go wrong? Hey, let’s put it on a Defense Committee too!
Michigan has been a 30 year project for us that culminated in the state going red in 16. Hell even Detroit elected a white dude as mayor twice.
Virginians elect the Party of radical in other words nominal islam, pigastinianism, homosexuality, pedophilia, transgenderism and every other form of sexual perversion, outright rape, communism, RINOism, atheism and other anti-God nonsense, criminal behavior of all types, black inadequacy, la raza, every other form of maladjusted minority status, murder, thievery, etc....
The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future. The way of the future.... The Aviator (2004)
Democrats are the Party of PERVERTS!!!
Could Sodom and Gomorrah been worse than where mankind is today? No way that was worse than where we are today in this world. If so........wow! Jesus needs to come get us and get us out of this vile filth we call Earth and living.
Transgender woman ...
If this trans thing works so good, why is she not just simply a ‘woman’?
How can one tell?
Virginia is a lost cause. It has gone full-blown DC establishment Liberal.
I can't imagine him winning reelection when it's a GOP wave or even just a regular non-wave year. I imagine his stay in the House of Delegates will be pretty brief.
VA is deep blue, Hillary won by 5 points, Gillespie lost by 8. That is the penalty for not embracing Trumpism. This guy did the same thing.
Also known as “losers”.
In a solidly Rat state?
