    Delaware has just elected the first openly transgender state senator in US history, according to CBS, the BBC's US broadcast partner, and AP.

    Sarah McBride will also become the highest-ranking transgender elected official ever to serve in America.

    McBride, who worked as an intern in the Obama administration, currently holds the seat representing Delaware's first district, a Democratic area.

    She's been an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights, previously serving as the national press secretary of the Human Rights Campaign advocacy group.

    According to the LGBTQ Victory Fund, there are four openly transgender people currently serving in state legislatures.

    Fund president Annise Parker said McBride's victory "gives hope to countless trans people looking toward a brighter future".

    "Her victory will inspire more trans people to follow in her footsteps and run for public office."
