Log Cabin Republicans: No Deal on ENDA for Romney Endorsement
Responding to reports of a back room deal with Romney that he would support ENDA in exchange for the endorsement of the gay Republican group, Log Cabin Republican executive director R. Clarke Cooper tells Buzzfeed that there is no such deal:
Cooper acknowledged that he "discussed legislative vehicles and executive actions with Romney regarding workplace non-discrimination, including ENDA." But he insisted the endorsement did not come in response to a Romney campaign pledge to sign ENDA — noting, "I did not say Romney would sign the current form of ENDA."
He added that Log Cabin is "confident we could work with a President Romney and his administration to achieve desirable tangible outcomes on workplace nondiscrimination."
