Woohoo! Christine Hallquist just won the Democratic nomination for governor of Vermont! First transgender individual to be so nominated. Like Danica Roem of VA, she ran and won on the issues, not her gender identity. And like Danica, you may be sure her opponent will MAKE this an issue.

Now she has to win the general. Fingers tightly crossed. I am trying to imagine that scenario in my state,Louisiana. I can't. ?

Maybe the World is waking up and beginning to realize that there are good people in all walks of life. Being a member of the LGBTQ+ Community shouldn't disqualify anyone from representing the people in whatever capacity they can. On top of all that, Christine Hallquist is a Scandinavian. We all know that they're the most fair historically. In the days when the Northern Plains were being settled, the Native Americans always looked favorably on the Scandinavian settlers because they always were fair in their trading and other endeavors. So, there are two reasons to support Christine Hallquist.

Congrats!! I do hope the people get out and vote. I want to see at least 70% voter turn out.

I think it will take heavy stumping now thru November to get to that number.
