Video: NC Gov. Perdue on Marriage Amendment: It Makes North Carolina Look Like Mississippi

 

Democratic Governor Bev Perdue is not happy that 61% of citizens in her state voted to protect marriage:

The Mississippi Governor, Phil Bryant, thinks Gov. Perdue is being "petty", according to the AP:

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said Friday it was “petty” for North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue to insult Mississippi while bemoaning that voters in her state approved a ballot measure banning same-sex marriage.

Bryant, a Republican who became governor in January, said he intends to write to Perdue about her comments. She is a Democrat who isn’t seeking a second term.

... In Jackson, Miss., Bryant said Perdue’s comments were “very disappointing.”

“To be able to use Mississippi in a disparaging way on a popular vote in her own state is, I think, something that’s certainly petty and something I think she will reflect on and hopefully apologize for those types of remarks,” Bryant told reporters after an unrelated news conference in Jackson.
