Lesniak: No on Harris’ nomination

TRENTON – Sen. Ray Lesniak said this morning he will vote ‘no’ on the Supreme Court nomination of Bruce Harris over concerns about Harris’ stance on same sex marriage.

Lesniak referenced a 2009 letter in which Harris states his support for same-sex marriage as a civil rights issue. 

Harris had said he would recuse himself from this issue if approved for the court.

“There is no place in this world for ‘traditions’ that deny people their civil rights,” Harris states in the letter that Lesniak gave to the media this morning.
