The executive director of Equality Nevada is running for the Nevada assembly and if she wins, she'll make history.

Lauren Scott -- running as a Republican but previously a Democrat -- is hoping to represent assembly district 30 in Carson City. Scott not only runs the state's LGBT organization, she "works as a consultant to government and private industry, focusing on business development and renewable energy issues," according to Nevada's mynews4.com. She previously served in the Air Force for seven years.

If elected, Scott would be the nation's first openly transgender state legislator.

"We need visionary and decisive leaders in Carson City, not legislators beholden to corporate interests," Scott is quoted as saying. "If left unchecked, neoconservative policies will turn Nevada into a corporate-owned wasteland, not a state for the people and their families. I will bring leadership and common sense back to the Republican Party." Read more here.
