From my vantage point, it's looking less and less likely that the New Jersey legislature will push through a gay marriage bill before Republican Chris Christie becomes governor. The Star-Ledger has the latest:
As state lawmakers prepare for their lame-duck session that begins Monday, top Senate Democrats remain split on whether the issue of gay marriage should be taken up before Gov.-elect Chris Christie takes office in January.
At the annual New Jersey State League of Municipalities conference in Atlantic City, Sen. Steven Sweeney (D-Gloucester) told reporters yesterday that gay marriage was an important issue but not one Democrats needed to focus on as a current priority.
Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen), the prime sponsor of the same-sex marriage bill in the Senate and the lieutenant governor candidate on the failed Democratic ticket, responded to Sweeney's comment, saying she is "urging our current majority leader to honor the commitment he made to me to move this important civil rights bill forward."
