These Two Transgender Women Made Election Night History

"Danica defeated "Bigot Bob" Marshall not because she is transgender, but because she presented a positive vision for her constituents that will improve their lives". Bob Marshall, one of the state's longest serving and most socially conservative lawmakers.
The race was marred by Marshall's constant stream of petulant trans-phobia and general asshattery, including frequently misgendering Roem and depicting her as a bathroom predator, but Roem rose above his bottom-dwelling commentary-and trounced him on election day.
"We have got to change the culture in Richmond, and sending two reporters between myself and Chris Hurst (a former Virginia local news anchor whose girlfriend, a reporter, was killed on live TV), that's a great start". He continued to run his homophobic agenda this year but still lost. In that time, Marshall wrote an anti-gay marriage amendment and sponsored Virginia'stransgender bathroom bill (which infamously banned students from using the bathroom that corresponded to their gender identity and required administrators to out trans kids to their parents), as well as a ban on gay people serving in the National Guard-just lots and lots of very bad stuff.
When questioned about his move to block a Medicaid expansion, which purported to benefit 400,000 people, Marshall gave a freaky argument suggesting expanding the health care initiative would mean cutting down on other things. "You tell me, then I'll tell you whether I agree with you or not", he asked.

During the campaign, Marshall refused to use Roem's correct pronouns. Her inspiring and graceful response? "I don't attack my constituents". "Danica has inspired trans leaders across the country, and it is inevitable more will follow in her footsteps and become powerful voices for our community". Dozens of Democrats - many of them political newcomers - unseated Republican incumbents in a wave of victories that surprised even those whose hope was unwavering.
This makes Roem the first openly transgender person to be elected at either a state or federal level to be elected to a legislature.
'2017 will be remembered as the year of the trans candidate - and Danica's heroic run for office the centerpiece of that national movement, ' said Aisha C. Moodie-Mills, president & CEO of Victory Fund, in a statement.
