Mixed results for LGBTQ Democrats on primary election night


While it was a more challenging night for some queer political hopefuls, other LGBTQ candidates enjoyed success in Democratic primary contests on June 28 and party-level positions saw multiple trans candidates competing.

At the statewide level, out bisexual candidate Ana María Archila fell short in her bid to become the state’s next lieutenant governor. Incumbent Antonio Delgado, a former member of Congress, had more than 57% of the vote as of June 29, while Archila sat in second place with just over 201,000 votes, or 23.35%.
