(Politico) The board of the nation's largest group of LGBT Republicans has voted to not endorse Donald Trump, in a contentious decision that did not reflect the preference of many of its chapters.

It's the second time the official national group has chosen not to back the GOP nominee — the prior time was 2004 for George W. Bush. The move reflects struggles throughout the Republican coalition, though for LGBT conservatives it's been particularly wrenching. Trump's rhetoric, they say, has been more pro-gay than any presidential nominee in history.
