Arizona state lawmaker Rep. Chad Campbell, an LGBT rights advocate and vocal opponent of a bill passed in the state legislature that would allow for religious discrimination against LGBT people, appeared on CNN on Friday to discuss the implications of the measure should it be signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer.
Campbell, the Democratic minority leader, said during Thursday’s debate that gays and lesbians across the country would get the message that they’re not welcome in Arizona.
“We’re telling them, ‘We don’t like you. We don’t want you here. We’re not going to protect you,” he said.

Brewer has not indicated whether she plans to sign the bill. On Friday, she said she will make her decision next week, according to the Arizona Repulic. “It’s very controversial, so I’ve got to get my hands around it.”
The measure is SB 1062.
