The gay conservative group hails Trump as a pro-LGBT candidate, but balked at his choice of anti-LGBT advisers. 

The Log Cabin Republicans will not endorse Donald Trump for president because of the anti-LGBT views of his "senior advisers."

The gay conservative group announced Friday that it would withhold an endorsement of the Republican presidential candidate.

In a release, the Log Cabin Republicans called Trump "perhaps the most pro-LGBT presidential nominee in the history of the Republican Party."

However, they chose not to endorse Trump because of the "senior advisers" surrounding the candidate. That includes his running mate, Mike Pence, who passed anti-LGBT legislation when he was governor of Indiana, and former opponent Ted Cruz, who will serve on Trump's religious advisory council.

Like many other traditional conservatives, the Log Cabin Republicans said they will focus on maintaining Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
