Well dud, he's a republiscum and wants to be v.p. or some other higher up position in the party of looneytune candidates someday. A nice easy,lazy one with very little responsiblity but one with an outragious salary of course...after all as mentioned, he is a GOPer and his corproate bosses don't deman much from him other than to make sure the people get zit when it comes to funding so there will always be plenty of bail out and or buddy contracts at outragious prices even for government contracts in his are. He's nothing more than a thug in a suit.

What a forward thinking man. It does seem that the GOP is afraid of gay men, rights of any kind for LGBT and ALL women, as well they should be - ENOUGH!

He wants it on the ballot in November to draw the Reich Wing to the polls if they aren't excited about their candidates.

That ballot measure could be the end of his career! He must feel strongly about it ... or possibly, he's been promised support by other fundamentalist nit-wits who want to impose their religion on the rest of us.

A short-term calculation that puts him on the wrong side of history.

Marriage should between two people who love each other!! The government needs to stay out of everyone's bedrooms. Love sees Love not sex or color.

A committed relationship is a committed relationship...can be same sex or not.
Just my thoughts but I do believe the same opportunities and and responsibilities should be available to all

At least this should lose the GOP many independents' votes should his dream of VP come to fruition.

Either by overturning his veto, or by action of the people of NJ, this will happen.

I guess the Gov just can't see the future with him not in it as a leader of NJ!!
