With Super Tuesday looming, the four remaining GOP candidates are scrambling for votes in Ohio, Oklahoma, and elsewhere with hopes of securing enough delegates to eventually win their party’s nomination and challenge President Obama this November.

Unfortunately, none of the Republican candidates stand for fair and equal treatment of LGBT Americans. In fact, these candidates have affirmed their support for policies that would all but guarantee discriminatory treatment of LGBT Americans in marriage, in the military, in employment, and elsewhere. For example, none of the remaining candidates support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would finally make discrimination against LGBT employees illegal.
