HRC Trans Activist Sarah McBride Announces Run for Senate

Human Rights Campaign’s national press secretary and trans activist Sarah McBride has announce she will be running for a seat in Delaware’s 1st Senate District, reports NBC News.


If she is successful she will be the first trans person elected to a state senate in the US.


McBride made her announcement just over a week after Incumbent Democrat Harris McDowell announced he would be retiring in 2020.


“I’ve spent my life fighting for people to have dignity, peace of mind, and a fair shot at staying afloat and getting ahead,” McBride said.


“Sen. McDowell’s retirement at the end of this term is a well-deserved cap on a remarkable career of public service, and now our neighbours need someone who will continue to fight for them,”


McBride has had a notable career, being the first openly trans person to work in the White House, and the first trans person to speak at the Democratic National Convention in 2016.
