Today, a Superior Court judge denied the Christie Administration's request to delay same-sex marriages in New Jersey. In response, Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Barbara Buono released the following statement:
"Today's ruling is a victory for all those who support equality. Our gay brothers and sisters have waited long enough for equal treatment under the law and the right to marry. I am elated that they will finally have the opportunity to get married right here in the Garden State.
"However, Governor Christie remains firmly on the wrong side of history, steadfast in his commitment to blocking marriage equality in New Jersey.
"It is time for Governor Christie to put New Jersey first and stop delaying marriage equality."
