Mr Marshall had made that remark in 2006 when he was laying out his thoughts on gay marriage - more recently, Mr Marshall had proposed legislation over a 'bathroom bill' similar to what passed with great controversy in North Carolina last year. As for Ms Roem, a former newspaper reporter, she first made history in June after defeating three other Democrats to become the first transgender woman to win a primary race to serve in the state government.
