Of all the Republicans leaving Congress, Florida representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is the one the LGBTQ community will miss the most.

As the mother of a transgender son, Ros-Lehtinen has been perhaps the LGBTQ community’s most influential GOP advocate in Congress. She’s stood up for LGBTQ equality against the Trump administration, and members of her party more than perhaps any other Republican member of Congress.

It’s no surprise that Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen leaves Congress with a rating of 100 from the Human Rights Campaign. With a record like that, she’s got to be the Republican the LGBTQ community will miss most when she retires at the end of her term.
