Florida’s Anti-Gay Republican MTF House Candidate Donna Milo Lost the GOP Primary. For The Best?

Donna Milo, the transgender woman running for a U.S. House seat in Florida, placed third of three Republican candidates in yesterday’s primary, picking up a still-impressive 22 percent of the vote but ultimate losing to Karen Harrington. Milo, the Cuban refugee who doesn’t believe in gay marriage and favors hetero adoption, may have lost, but did she also just become the most-voted-for trans candidate in a federal election ever?
