Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana
- As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Jindal voted to approve the failed Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006.
- In 2008 he refused to reissue an executive order that banned antigay discrimination by state agencies and contractors: "The reason for allowing the order to lapse is that I don't think it is necessary to create additional special categories or special rights." (Although Romney said in 1994 that he would vote to approve the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, he has since said it's unnecessary because it would “open a litigation floodgate and unfairly penalize employers at the hands of activist judges.”)
- Later that year Jindal formed the Louisiana Commission on Marriage and Family, which included representatives of organizations opposing marriage equality.
