Senator-to-be Booker to perform NJ gay weddings
Saturday - 10/19/2013, 12:00pm EDT
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- U.S. Sen.-elect Cory Booker says he will officiate at weddings of both gay and heterosexual couples as the mayor of Newark now that New Jersey is allowing same-sex marriage.
Booker said in a statement Friday that he is excited to marry couples at City Hall starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday.
On Friday, New Jersey's highest court ruled unanimously to uphold an order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay sought by Gov. Chris Christie's administration.
The Newark mayor was elected Wednesday to the U.S. Senate and has been a strong supporter of gay rights. He says he has refused all requests to officiate marriages for the past seven years on principle.
