Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative
09 November 2017, 12:27 | Tara Lloyd
Marshall, a fervently right-wing politician who made national headlines in 2016 when he introduced the so-called "bathroom bill" created to restrict restroom access to transgender individuals, found himself in the fight of his career against Roem, who came out as transgender in 2013.
The race was one of the year's most high profile and drew national and worldwide attention and big money to the northern Virginian district. According to the Post, he refused to debate Roem and insisted on referring to her using male pronouns - tactics in keeping with his self-proclaimed status as the state's "chief homophobe", but ultimately less than useful during the campaign.
Roem unseated Bob Marshall, who has been a conservative Republican figure in the Virginia State Legislature for 26 years.

Danica Roem Promises a "More Inclusive Commonwealth" She never uses the word "transgender", but images are shown with her campaigning while wearing a rainbow handkerchief scarf. "This one's for you", Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters. And she knocks the incumbent for "demonstrat [ing] that his legislative priorities are more focused on where I go to the bathroom than how his constituents get to work". "We shouldn't just be pigeonholed into the idea that we're just going to be fighting about bathrooms".
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".
"Thank you Hoboken. I look forward to being your Mayor!"
One pf the biggest reasons Roem ran is what some commuters describe as a terrible commute along Route 28. Her first move was talking to Senator Mark Warner after her win on Tuesday night, specifically about the traffic lights on Route 28.
