We are THRILLED to announce that openly gay democrat Adam Ebbin, having served in the Virgina House of Delegates since 2004, has become the state's first out and homosexual gay senator, beating Republican challenger Timothy McGhee yesterday by a margin of 64% to 35%!
He says in a statement:
“I am honored by the trust the voters have showed in me. During the campaign, I listened to the voters’ concerns and will work on behalf of the values we all share: improving our public schools, expanding our transit system and cleaning up Virginia’s environment. I will make sure their voices are heard.”
And not only will be using his new position to push LGBT supportive bills and block anti-gay measures, but he has also listed his top priorities as pushing legislation to ban job discrimination against state government employees!
Such a proud day for Virginia, and the US government alike!
Congratulations, Sir! Make us proud!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
