Roem, who couldn't immediately be reached for an interview Tuesday night, openly discussed her gender identity during her campaign, but it was far from her focus.
In the race for Virginia's 13th District, Roem, who was the Virginia House of Delegates candidate, defeated Republican incumbent Bob Marshall. She also argued that Marshall had spent too much of his energy during his term tackling social issues.

In that time, Marshall wrote an anti-gay marriage amendment and sponsored Virginia'stransgender bathroom bill (which infamously banned students from using the bathroom that corresponded to their gender identity and required administrators to out trans kids to their parents), as well as a ban on gay people serving in the National Guard-just lots and lots of terrible stuff.
On the campaign trail, Marshall and other Republicans repeatedly misidentified Roem's gender. She says she was very specific about the issues her campaign was built on, and it resonated- in part, because of her background.
