While the United State Elections vote counting sees a neck and neck competition between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Sarah McBride became the nation's first openly transgender state senator after claiming a seat in DE on Tuesday night.
At present, there are four openly transgender state legislators: Virginia state Del. Your historic election tonight is a remarkable reminder that we can work together for a brighter, more inclusive, and queerer future.
"Over the last three elections, the share of LGBTQ voters has continued to increase, solidifying our community as a key rising constituency that politicians must court", Human Rights Campaign (HRC) president Alphonso David said in a statement.
"I hope tonight shows an LGBTQ kid that our democracy is big enough for them, too", she said on social media Tuesday night.
As a state senator, she will also be the country's highest-ranking openly transgender official - and first elected official in Delaware's history.
'As Delaware continues to face the Covid crisis, it's time to get to work to invest in the policies that will make a difference for working families'.
Meanwhile, further north, Taylor Small, 26, has been elected to the Vermont State Legislature, becoming that state's first trans representative.
"Throughout this election cycle, Donald Trump and other cynical politicians attempted to use trans people as a political weapon, believing they could gain popularity by stoking fear and hate".
Sarah McBride is the first self-described "transgender" candidate to win a state senate seat in DE, the home state of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. McBride has spent her life fighting for equality since 2013 when she officially joined the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware and became the leading advocate for the state's landmark non-discrimination legislation.
Ms Greene has promoted the conspiracy in online videos, but she tried to distance herself from the tile of "QAnon candidate" in an interview with Fox News earlier this year.
She released a memoir in 2018, entitled "Tomorrow Will Be Different", which earned acclaim from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
