Primaries were held in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Vermont Tuesday, where Christine Hallquist made history by becoming the first openly transgender major-party gubernatorial nominee in U.S. history. She easily won the Democratic primary and will now face Republican Vermont Governor Phil Scott in November. If she wins, she’ll become the nation’s first transgender governor. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders also easily won his Democratic Senate primary, though he’s expected to run in November as an independent.
