Wow! For “conservative” Virginia to elect an openly gay senator says alot about how we as a nation is changing. Democrat Adam Ebbin (who has served in the Virginia House of Delegates since 2004) became Virginia’s FIRST openly gay senator after a landslide winning. He had 64% of the popular vote against Republican Timothy McGhee who had 35%.
He released a statement saying:
“I am honored by the trust the voters have showed in me,” Ebbin said in a statement. “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.”
