In the primary his Democratic rival, Joseph McColley, told CNN that he wins the race to McBride and wants him well.
McBride, who serves as a spokesman for the human rights campaign, is favored to win in November in a heavily Democratic district against Republican candidate Steve Washington, including the city of Wilmington.
McBride ran on increasing access to health care and paid leave, increasing Delaware’s minimum wage, and reforming the criminal justice system.
If elected in November, McBride will also be Delaware’s first legislator, the LGBTQ man elected to the state assembly.
At the age of 21, she was the student president at American University when she appeared in a Facebook post in 2012 as a transgender and an op-ed in a student newspaper.
McBride also worked on the late Beau Biden’s campaign for Delaware Attorney General, and former Vice President Joe Biden called for his 2018 memoir, “Tomorrow Will Be Different.”
“He was honest and heartfelt,” Biden wrote in 2012, recalling McBride’s upcoming essay. “Even at that young age she was a leader. Not because she felt she was better than anyone else, but because she treated everyone equally.” She was Biden even then. ”
The head of a political action committee, which aims to elect LGBTQ politicians, said McBride’s victory would “inspire more transgender people to run for elected office.”
McBride is one of the transgender candidates running for the state assembly in this election.
“As the first transgender speaker at a national party convention, Sarah spoke for a long-ignored community and as the first transgender person to work in a side house, she took power in the hall for her community Spoke truthfully for advocating. Unrecognizable to someone like him, “Human Rights Campaign President Alfonso David said in a statement on Tuesday. “Next year, as the first transgender state senator in our nation, Sarah will show that any child can achieve their dream, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.”
