And she beat the incumbent who was in the seat for over 20 years and is described as very anti LGBT, who wrote the state's bathroom bill I just read.

And there's a trans woman in Utah that won the democratic primary for one of Utah's House positions. And a trans man that was elected to the school board in Erie PA.

A model of taking the high road. I listened to an interview with her last night. Issue focused, factual, passionate and humble.

My kind of woman.

It was reported that during the campaign, Danica would only talk about the issues, such as jobs, infrastructure, the economy, taxes, etc, etc. The hardcore, neo-con, religious righty incumbent would only talk about what bathroom she used, that she was supposedly a cross-dresser, would deliberately misgender her with he, his, him, make off-color gender jokes, etc, etc. Ones should ask themselves, 'Now who ran the most informative and successful campaign for the voters ?' . That tells the whole story in a nutshell !

At the very least, someone should offer Bob a *puts on sunglasses* cab ride home.

Jokes aside, yay for progress.

DANIKA TELLS IT LIKE IT IS ( and exposes her neo-con, so-called religious, transphobe opponent for the poor excuse of a man that he is )---

And notice Danica won on the Democratic Party ticket. I doubt she would have won if sheran on the Libertarian or Green Party tickets, but could have possibly been a spoiler for the Dems if she ran on those platforms.
