NEW BRUNSWICK – The Democratic gubernatorial candidate applauded today’s Superior Court decision legalizing marriage equality in New Jersey.
“Today's decision reaffirms that all New Jerseyans, no matter who they love, deserve the right to marry. It is a tremendous victory for everyone who believes in equality,” Sen. Barbara Buono said in a statement.
“It is also a stark reminder that Governor Christie stands on the wrong side of history. At every turn, he has prevented our gay brothers and sisters from enjoying the same rights as other New Jerseyans. He must now make a decision whether to continue to be an obstacle or to be part of the solution.
“The courts have spoken and the people have spoken. It is time for Chris Christie to stop blocking equal rights for all New Jerseyans.”
The administration had not publicly commented on the ruling that was issued earlier Friday.

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).- NJTV
