Marriage vote in New Jersey

Posted on 07 Dec 2009 at 12:18pm

The New Jersey Senate could vote as early as today on a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in The Garden State.

According to TheGothamist.com, the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to approve the measure, but the vote on the floor will be much closer. Although the Democrats hold a majority in the Senate, some of those Democrats are against gay marriage. So they need some Republicans to vote for it.

And timing is key. Democratic Gov. John Corzine supports same-sex marriage. But he was defeated in the November elections by Republican Chris Christie, who will take office oin Jan. 19 and has said he would veto gay marriage.
