LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Juliegrace Brufke

Democrat Misty K. Snow, the first transgender female to run for Senate in 2016, announced she is planning to run for Utah’s 2nd congressional district Wednesday.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee defeated Snow by a landslide, beating his opponent by a 41.1 percent margin. While Snow didn’t win a seat in the upper chamber in the largely red state, she is hoping she’ll have better luck on the House side.

Snow blasted the Trump administration’s handling of gay right, alleging the government has shown “nothing but hostility towards people of color and the LGBT community” over the course of the past few months.

“I want a government that protects the rights the rights of working people, of people of color, of the LGBT community, and the rights of sovereign Native tribes,” she wrote. “I am running for a congress (sic)  because I want to be a representative who truly represents you.

She said she’s anticipating Trump’s popularity to decline, which she feels will give her an edge in the race.

Snow said she is launching her campaign early to provide more time to connect with voters.

The seat is currently held by Republican Rep. Chris Stewart, who took office in 2013.

You trumped he majority of the nation thru political activism to get SCOTUS and bias liberal judges to give you marriage rights.. What more do you want?? You have the same rights I do tranny!! You like most LBT people want privileges based on sexual orientation.

    This is not a ‘she’. If your genetics are male, you are forever a male. No amount of BS will change that.
