This Woman Just Became The First Trans State Legislator In Virginia

Trump Shifts From Aggressor to Negotiator on North Korea

"I'm committed to continue the fight for you, but in a different role going forward". However, the bill, which was tabled in the state's General Assembly, was killed by a Republican-led committee.

Ms Roem championed gay, transgender and immigrant rights during her campaign, but the race mostly focused on the state's transport infrastructure.

She declares to have "the public policy knowledge, the local roots, and the innovative ideas" to effectively represent the district "while also working to make Virginia a more inclusive Commonwealth".

When asked about Marshall after her victory, Roem said that "I don't attack my constituents". But in the end, that tactic failed.

Liberal organizations came out and lauded Roem's win on Twitter and in official statements after the election results came in. Kathy Tran, a refugee from Vietnam, became the first Asian American woman elected to the Virgina House of Delegates.

"It's hard to encapsulate just how powerful it is to see this particular glass ceiling shattered", Sarah McBride, a spokeswoman for the Human Rights Campaign and a transgender woman said.

Kaufusi replaces John Curtis, Provo's current mayor, who successfully ran for the US House seat that was left open when former congressman Jason Chaffetz resigned in June. That is why Roem's election is making headlines. "It's hope. Hope for a better tomorrow".

"Virginia has changed so rapidly over the past 20 years".

A transgender candidate was elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 2012, but didn't take office.

Roem handily outraised her opponent and as the Washington Post reports, her campaign "executed an aggressive ground game, knocking on doors more than 75,000 times in a district with 52,471 registered voters, sitting for endless public appearances and interviews, and maintaining a steady social media presence". That message resonated in communities that have seen an influx of immigrants and millennials. "This is why I ran". I don't care about items that are big on his agenda. "No kid should have to be the last one to be picked up at school because of traffic congestion".

"That was the primary factor in how I voted", said King. "She can take all the estrogen she wants but she'll never be a woman". She won more than 70% of the votes, the newspaper reported.

"We're gonna finally fix Route 28", Roem said from a party in Gainesville where she declared victory. "If anybody thinks I was joking about that, they're about to be annoyed for the next two years as I constantly persist".
