Anita Mann for the Win!

Delaware progressive Democrat Eric Morrison has soundly defeated incumbent State Rep. Earl Jaques (D) in the state’s primary election, garnering 61% of the vote.

Morrison is also a drag queen who performs under the name “Anita Mann.” Jacques, the incumbent, was a staunch opponent of LGBTQ rights.


Jacques had already lost one skirmish with Morrison when he launched an attack against the progressive for holding a drag show as a campaign fundraiser. When his bigoted remarks failed to land, he backtracked and apologized.

“That is so far off-base for our district, it’s unbelievable,” Jaques originally told The News Journal in November 2019. “You wonder what the point is. You can have fundraisers, I don’t care about that. But dressing in drag? Really?”

“I’m not sure he represents the people who attend those places of religion. If he’s actually having a fundraiser in drag, I don’t think those churches would endorse that… I’m just saying it’s a little different, that’s for sure.”

Woah, I've met Anita two or three times at a drag show before. She's part of the Imperial Court system and was at the DC coronation a few years ago. Nice job Eric...glad progressives are making in-roads throughout the Democratic party.

Nothin' new...I've posted about attending drag shows before. I have a close friend (Muffy Blake Stephyns, Empress IV) who my friends and I have supported for years. It's a helluva fun time, the people you meet are awesome, and everything is for charity.

I understand that Anita Mann will be running against Amanda Huggenkiss in the general election.

Yes - he's a drag queen, not transgender.


BTW - dang Delaware has a lot of house districts. If Arizona had the same population ratio (32K per district), Arizona would have 333 districts instead of 30
