Spotlight Candidate

Sarah will be the first trans person elected to Congress!


State Senator Sarah McBride is running to be the first out transgender person elected to Congress. Sarah has been an advocate for most of her life, working for Delaware officials including former Governor Jack Markell and the late Attorney General Beau Biden, as a White House intern during the Obama Administration, and as a spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ equal rights organization. In just her first term, McBride led the fight to pass the landmark Healthy Delaware Families Act, providing paid family and medical leave to workers throughout the First State and marking the largest expansion of Delaware’s social safety net in decades. She has also passed legislation expanding access to health care, requiring mental health and media literacy education in public schools, promoting green technologies, and protecting workers and families. Sarah married her late husband Andrew Cray in 2014 and is the proud aunt of Juliette, Theo, Bennett, Sydney, Ben, and Addison.
