Virginia state Del. Danica Roem (D-Manassas) on Tuesday won re-election. The Manassas Democrat defeated Republican Christopher Stone, who is a U.S. Air Force veteran, by a 54.4-45.6 percent margin with 22 out of 24 precincts in the 13th District reporting. Roem in 2017 became the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature in the U.S. Roem two years later became the first out trans state legislator to win re-election. “For a third time, the people of the city of Manassas Park and the western Prince William portions of Haymarket, Gainesville and my lifelong home of Manassas have supported our message of making Virginia a more inclusive commonwealth, where we build up our infrastructure instead of tear down each other,” said Roem in a statement.
