    Because the Christians running it didn't want them there. They preach same sex marriage and the Christians seem to find that message to be out of sync with what they promote at their event. It's right in the article in the OP.

    No matter how many times that gets mentioned in this thread, for some reason, it keeps getting ignored.

    Correct. It was a conservative event hosted by a Christian university (I believe, right?).

    though it does introduce a very problematic message. The Democrats usually don't have to do that much of demographic shifting. Largely speaking, if one of their candidates is appearing, any supporting group is basically welcome.

    It doesn't impact the GOP too much, considering the Log Cabins are relatively small, and Democrats usually despise the Log Cabins because they are seen like Judas's. However, it does present an image problem for Republicans the more LGBT issues gain traction.

    This is not a problem for Repubs in the slightest.

    Hi Pol, I don't know. But for some reason there are quite a few people who are absolutely determined to make this a Republican event. Maybe it's a subconscious thing.

    Electoral wise, not yet. Though with the dynamic that's rising, it could become a bit costly in the mid-term (say, the next decade). Most people are self-interested, but they tend to align with parties that at least appear to be where de facto public dialogue is.

    Repubs will adjust appropriately.

    Which will require rethinking these kind of events.

    Not for the Repubs. They're not involved in this event.
