NJ governor ends gay marriage fight as couples wed
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie dropped his fight against gay marriage in New Jersey on Monday, framing the decision in a pragmatic way: No point in fighting a losing battle.
Just hours after gay couples began exchanging vows with the blessing of New Jersey's Supreme Court, Christie announced he was withdrawing his appeal to the high court.
New Jersey is the 14th state to legalize gay marriage.
