Just how anti-LGBT is Mike Pence?
Pence is a Christian conservative who, as governor of IN, attempted to amend the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriages IN 2014.
In 2006, Pence supported a constitutional amendment that would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman. As governor of IN in 2015, Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill that would have given people the right to discriminate against LGBT people for religious reasons.
In 2007, Pence spoke against a bill that would protect gays and lesbians from discrimination in the workplace.
A Wall Street Journal story published Friday claimed Pence's Great America Committee is already handing out campaign cash to GOP candidates who support President Donald Trump.
