What’s at Stake During Tonight’s Republican Caucus in Iowa

by Maureen McCarty February 01, 2016

Tonight, Iowa Republicans will caucus for their choice in GOP presidential candidates.

While our country has come a long way on LGBT equality in the last seven years, we face tremendous challenges ahead -- and we need a strong champion for LGBT equality who can beat any anti-equality challenger in November.

No matter who the nominee is, the GOP presidential candidates records and rhetoric on equality prove that much is in danger for the rights of the LGBT community.

Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio have all vowed to try to overturn the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. And eight candidates -- Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee -- have shown support for the discriminatory First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) -- or similar legislation -- to open up broad loopholes and put LGBT Americans at risk for discrimination in their daily lives.

Each of the Republican candidates’ records threaten to walk back the progress that’s been made on LGBT rights and protections during President Obama’s tenure in office.

Get the facts on what’s at stake tonight in Iowa.
