GRIFF JENKINS: In Vermont, it was all about [Sen.] Bernie Sanders [D-VT], and they nominated the first transgender candidate for governor.

...

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): That transgender beat the 14-year-old. Remember, they didn't have an age limit? So, the 14-year-old said, “Well, I'm going to run.” Ran in the primary. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): And they did.

EARHARDT: Didn't win.
