Roy, who represents the Democratic party, managed the elections with a small margin to beat the Republican Robert Marshall, who calls himself "chief homophobe of Virginia".

Marshall was aggressively transphobic in his campaign, including refusing to debate Roem and consistently referring to her with the wrong pronoun.

Roem was open about her gender identity and had backing from LGBT groups.
