CHICAGO — Jill Rose Quinn could be Illinois’s first elected transgender judge after being endorsed by the county Democratic Party.
The Daily Line, a online politics newspaper, reported that Quinn’s name was among 13 endorsed to fill vacancies on the Cook County Circuit Court.
The county party slated their endorsements last week at a union hall in Chicago. The Daily Line reported Quinn is also the first transgender candidate the party has ever endorsed.
InJustice Watch reported back in February that Quinn entered politics after a transphobic ad by then-Rauner challenger Jeannie Ives.
