Transgender Candidate Runs in Florida

Transgender Candidate Runs in Florida


Donna Milo, a transgender Republican businesswoman from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is in the race for the 20th congressional district seat, running on a platform of conservative values in government.

"I'm concerned about the way the government is growing --all of the overregulation, all of the taxation," Milo told CBS4, a Miami television station.

Milo has never held public office and hopes her transgender status does not deter voters.

"It's one of my characteristics, but my campaign and platform, what I'm all about is the conservative values that made this country a great country that made this country a beacon of hope for many people, including my family," Milo said. "My friends and family have been very supportive. I've been blessed."

In addition to being a mother and a candidate, Milo is a homebuilder and a pilot.

Milo, along with six other candidates, is trying to unseat incumbent congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat who is running for reelection.
