On the day when everything changed for us here in the States, I was merely 17 years old. I was a senior in high school. I was unsure of my future. And I was still very much in the closet.
When I got into this race for the Iowa House, I planned on winning. And I still believe I was the best candidate to represent my district. A district with a diverse mix of school districts. A district with suburban and rural voters. A district with main street communities and national brand potential.
