Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s running mate, attracted national attention last year when he signed a religious freedom law that members of the LGBT community said could worsen discrimination against them.
After criticism from the business community, Pence signed an amendmentto the law intended to protect gays and lesbians.
But it was not his first brush with criticism from the LGBT community. A self-described “Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order,”the former member of Congress was a prominent conservative figure in battles over marriage equality and equal rights in the last decade.
