Paula Overbye

Paula Overbye, seen in an Aug. 7, 2013 photo in Eagan, Minn., is running for the congressional seat held by Republican John Kline. Overby, born a man who now identifies as a woman, believes she will be the first openly transgendered person from Minnesota to run for Congress. She will face fellow Eagan residents Thomas Craft, another political newcomer who announced his candidacy in July, and Mike Obermueller, who lost a 2012 bid to unseat U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Lakeville. Kline has held the seat for more than a decade. (AP Photo/Pioneer Press, Scott Takushi)
