VIRGINIA: First Openly Gay State Senator

Virginia today elected its first openly gay state senator, Adam Ebbin, who was elected to the state House of Delegates in 2003.

“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.”
