Speaking about his often-repeated position that same-sex marriage should be placed on the ballot — rather than voted on in the state legislature — so majority rule can decide the rights of gay people, Christie defended his comments.
“I trust the people of New Jersey to make this judgment. I don’t trust 121 politicians with political agendas,” Christie told Buono.
“My daughter, who is openly gay, is not a political agenda,” Buono responded.
Earlier today, Governor Christie stopped at a local diner and got into a debate with a voter who supports same-sex marriage. “I have friends who are gay” he told her — but he won’t change his mind on marriage.
