Bernie Sanders Definitely Won Vermont’s Democratic Senate Primary

Christine Hallquist won a Democratic primary for governor in Vermont Tuesday, putting her one step closer to becoming the first transgender governor in American history.

Christine Hallquist made history in Vermont Tuesday night as the first openly transgender nominee for a governorship from a major party in the nation's history, beating back her Democratic challengers in the state's primary.

Outside Vermont, though, she said she's happy to carry the standard as the candidate who, if elected, would be the nation's first transgender governor.

"I am not apologetic for who I am", Hallquist said in an interview with Politico. Originally meant to be a documentary about the Vermont electric company dealing with climate change, it also became a personal story as Hallquist came out as transgender to Derek during the making of the film.

'Vermonters looked at, 'What's Christine and her team going to do for Vermont?' 'We continue to demonstrate leadership in civil rights and how to honor and work with each other.

She will face incumbent Gov. Phil Scott and stands to become the first openly trans governor in the country.

Scott will seek re-election in November by continuing his pledge to make the state more affordable, not raise taxes or fees, foster a better environment for businesses and attract newcomers to the state.

Hallquist defeated environmental activist James Ehlers, dance festival organizer Brenda Siegel, and 14-year-old Ethan Sonneborn - who got on the ticket because a loophole in the state law doesn't require candidates to be of voting age.

Nicholson failed to overcome his past as a Democrat.
