Sarah McBride, who in 2016 was the first openly transgender person to address the Democratic National Convention, made history again with a primary victory Sept. 15, setting her up for her likely win as the highest-ranking openly transgender legislator in the United States. 'I'm overwhelmed with gratitude tonight,' McBride said in a statement. 'This victory would be impossible without the incredible work of hundreds of grassroots volunteers.
