From The Panel, 4:45 pm on 17 August 2018

Vermont democrats have chosen transgender woman Christine Hallquist as their candidate for governor.

It's the first time a major party has nominated a trans person for the role. She'll be up against the incumbent, republican Phil Scott, this November.

She tells The Panel she is part of a wave of change, inspired by the current political climate.
