A handful of Republican senators are preemptively threatening to block Hillary Clinton’s judicial nominees, if she’s elected president. Here, a crowd is pictured gathered outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on March 4, 2015, as the court hears arguments in King v. Burwell, a major test of President Barack Obama's health overhaul.

  • Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative: Discrimination is a disqualifier

    Virginia Democrat Danica Roem, the US’s first openly transgender state representative, gave a thank-you speech following the announcement of her win on Tuesday, November 7. She beat Bob Marshall, who had served in Virginia’s House of Delegates since 1992. Marshall introduced a “bathroom bill” earlier in the year, requiring people to use only the restroom that matched their biological sex. The bill was not passed. This video shows Roem’s victory speech at the election night watch party. “To every person who’s ever been singled out, who’s ever been stigmatized, who’s ever been the misfit… This one’s for you,” Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters.
