Danica Roem, the first openly transgender candidate to win a senate seat in the South, has won a Virginia State Senate seat, successfully defeating Bill Woolf.
Roem’s victory was part of a big night for Virginia Democrats, who held the Senate and captured the House of Delegates.
“For the last six years, I’ve focused on serving my constituents and our community, no matter what they look like, where they come from, how they worship if they do, or who they love,” Roem posted. (Trending: Donald Trump Loses His Cool At High-Stakes $250 Million Trial)
