Democrat from Texas Who Sided with The Gop to Oppose Minors Receiving Gender-Affirming Care Loses in The Primary!

In a surprising turn of events, a Democratic lawmaker in Texas faced defeat in a primary runoff after breaking ranks with her party on a contentious issue. Rep. Shawn Thierry, who had typically aligned with her fellow Democrats, found herself at odds when she voiced support for a ban on gender-affirming care for minors. Her defeat, by a significant margin, came as a blow to her four-term tenure representing South Houston.

Thierry’s stance on the proposed ban sparked outrage among Democratic colleagues and LGBTQ+ advocacy groups nationwide. Her opponent, Lauren Ashley Simmons, a union organizer, garnered support from these groups, galvanizing a campaign that ultimately led to Thierry’s loss in the primary runoff.

Simmons, who received backing from LGBTQ+ organizations, is now positioned as the favored candidate for the heavily Democratic district in the upcoming November elections.
