Christie On Gay Marriages In NJ: I’m Happy ‘If They’re Happy’

November 6, 2013 9:34 a.m.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Wednesday that he is happy for gay couples getting married in the state.

“I’m happy for them, if they’re happy,” Christie said in a Union City, N.J. press conference, noting his opinion was true regardless of gender.

When asked if he had an emotional reaction to same-sex couples being able to obtain marriage licenses in New Jersey, Christie said “not really.”

“I don’t get weepy” when reading the New York Times wedding announcements, Christie said. “I usually don’t have an emotional reaction to people getting married.”

Christie won re-election Tuesday night in a landslide, earning about 60 percent of the vote. Exit polls show that almost half of same-sex marriage supporters voted for him.
