CHRISTIE SAYS SUPREME COURT NOMINEE WON’T RULE ON GAY MARRIAGE ISSUE

An openly gay Supreme Court nominee won’t rule on the issue of gay marriage if it comes before the courts. Gov. Chris Christie said this week that Bruce Harris, who is the mayor of Chatham, has advocated for gay marriage in his political life and would recuse himself if the issue came before the Supreme Court. Harris is one of two nominees that the Senate are considering for two vacancies on the Supreme Court.
