Christie: I’d Veto Same-Sex Bill

This could put a strain on BFFs President Obama and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Christie announced he would veto a same-sex marriage bill if it got to his desk, and noted that the recent Supreme Court ruling striking a ban on federal benefits for same-sex marriage won't impact New Jersey, which allows civil unions. "It's just another example of judicial supremacy rather than having a government run by the people we actually vote for," he said in an interview. "I thought it was a bad decision, but it has no effect on New Jersey at all so we move from here." Gay marriage advocates in New Jersey plan to file a motion next week in an attempt to force the state to recognize same-sex marriage in light of the top court's ruling.
