If the bill were to move forward, Democrats would need the votes of a few Republicans to override Christie's likely veto of the bill, Lesniak acknowledged.

But the Democrat also suggested jokingly that Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R), the state's acting governor when Christie is traveling, could sign the bill on a day Christie is out of town for his campaign.

"She has always said that the day that I sign a bill without his approval is my last day on the job," said Lesniak, laughing, "But in this case, that would be his last day on the job. It would be mischievous, although he would do the same thing to us if the shoes were reversed."
