Minnesotans have officially elected the states’s first transgender lawmaker into office. What a proud moment it must be for the state, I mean who doesn’t love virtue signaling nonsense.
Democratic candidate Leigh Finke collected 15,635 votes, or 81%, in District 66A in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
The district is located northeast of Minneapolis, and has a population of just over 41,000 people.
Finke’s opponent, Trace Johnson (R), received 3,569 votes, or 18.5%
When Finke is sworn into office in January, she will replace Alice Hausman (D), who was first elected to office in 1989.
Finke ran on abortion, improving mental health in schools, LGBTQ issues and economic opportunities. You know, because the left is so good at those things.
On Wednesday morning, Finke turned to Twitter to address the victory.
“Many stories will be written about Minnesota’s elections,” she said in a tweet quoting the Victory Fund. “One undeniable story is the rise of Queer Political Power.”
According to its website, Victory Fund has helped elect thousands of LGBTQ candidates into office since 1991.
“Leigh made history tonight because she is ready to disrupt the status quo and fight for real change on behalf of her community,” Annise Parker, the president and CEO of Victory Fund, said. “From safeguarding abortion rights to addressing societal inequities, she has a vision for the future that voters are clearly enthusiastic about. Her win is a clear and deafening rebuke to the transphobia currently sweeping our communities and her success will inspire other trans people to step up and run.”
