NJ.com’s Matt Arco reports that Chris Christie has broken his two day silence on the Indiana RFRA law:
“Well, we should not have a situation where people perceive that anybody will be denied service. But, I can tell you this, I know Mike Pence, and he’s got nothing but love in his heart for people and I just do not believe that in any way Mike Pence would intend for anything that happen in his state on his watch to be discriminatory towards any person,” Christie said in a statement.
“And so, my guess is that he’ll fix the problem and move on,” Christie said. “Because that’s the kind of guy he is. I will tell you, amongst the governors, there is nobody that I’ve met amongst the governors who is more sincere in his faith and in his love for people than Mike Pence. So, I just don’t believe any of this stuff is true and to the extent that something needs to be fixed to clarify that no one will be denied service for discriminatory reasons, I’m sure that’s exactly what Mike will do.”
Christie didn’t specify, however, exactly what parts of the law needed “to be fixed.”
