Here's the solid Republican positions he's taken in Minnesota:
Emmer took the lead on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions in 2007.
He opposes GLBT-inclusive anti-bullying legislation.
Emmer proposed an amendment in committee to ban gay and lesbian couples (as well as unmarried heterosexual couples) from using a surrogate mother.
He voted to deny local governments the ability to offer domestic partner benefits to their employees, voted against health care benefits for partners of state employees, voted against allowing public school students to learn about age-appropriate comprehensive sex education, and voted to deny same-sex couples the legal right to make decisions concerning the remains of their partner.

And he called HIV prevention outreach to gay men “disgusting discourse” and led an effort to strip the Minnesota AIDS Project of state funding.
