Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative

Marshall also introduced a "bathroom bill" earlier this year that would have required transgender people to use a public restroom that corresponded with the sex on their birth certificate.

"This is what happens when the radical transgender lobby pours more than $600,000 into a small state race and conservative donors largely sit the race out - Democrats cruise to victory and claim a mandate on an issue they were too afraid to outwardly campaign on", said Terry Schilling, executive director at the Washington-based American Principles Project, which donated money to Marshall and orchestrated a telephone poll aimed at shoring up his supporters late in the race.

Marshall made Roem's gender identity a source of attacks in the campaign too, repeatedly using male pronouns to refer to Roem and sending out an attack ad on a flyer based exclusively around Roem being trans.

For months, Roem had knocked on doors and visited subdivisions, talking to anyone who would listen about her goal of alleviating traffic on Northern Virginia's crowded roadways.

Virginia has a new representative working on behalf of the state's 13th district in its House of Delegates - and she rocks.

"Roem ran a smart, issues-driven campaign focused on improving the lives of her neighbors; a campaign that ran counter to her opponent's divisive and transphobic rhetoric".

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Marshall said: "For 26 years I've been proud to fight for you, and fight for our future. We don't just want a seat at the table, we want to set the table".

"Thank you Hoboken. I look forward to being your Mayor!"

OnePlus 5T will be launched on November 16 in NY
It is worth noting that OnePlus and Oppo are both owned by BBK Electronics, and the OnePlus 5 looked a lot like the Oppo R11. As a outcome , the fingerprint reader will likely move to the back of the phone like the Pixel and on LG handsets.

Roem raised more than twice as many funds as Marshall, receiving significant donations from out of state and national donors including the Victory Fund, a national group that aims to elect LGBTQ leaders. "This is why I ran".

Althea Garrison, elected in MA, was the first openly transgender person to serve in a state legislature, but did not campaign as an openly transgender person during her race in 1992.

With 19 out of 20 precincts in the state's 13th district reporting, Roem had won comfortably with 54.6% of the vote.

"We're gonna finally fix Route 28", Roem said from a party in Gainesville where she declared victory.
