Log Cabin Republicans leader 'not nervous' about conservative Supreme Court impacting LGBT rights

The executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans said on Friday she was not concerned that the conservative-leaning Supreme Court could impact the LGBT community.

"No, I'm interested in it," Jerri Ann Henry told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti on "Rising," when asked if she was nervous about the high court.

"I think we're going to be OK," she said. "We'll have to see. I'm not nervous about it, though." 

Henry was appointed to lead the prominent Republican advocacy group last month.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2015 to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide, but there have since been a series of closely watched decisions involving the LGBT community.

The high court in June narrowly sided with a Colorado baker who had refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex wedding.

Then-Justice Anthony Kennedy, Chief Justice John Roberts, and conservative Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch ruled in favor of the baker, along with liberal Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.

Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.
