N.J. Gay Marriage: 69 Days, and Counting


New Jersey governor Jon Corzine (pictured), who lost his bid for reelection last week, will leave office in 69 days, providing a small window of time for the state legislature to pass a marriage equality bill.

Governor Corzine, who supported the 2007 civil union law, has pledged to sign a marriage equality bill if legislators can pass it, but lawmakers need to act fast, according to the Star-Ledger.

"That means the state Legislature has 10 weeks to get a gay marriage bill on the governor's desk -- or give up for at least the next four years," the Star-Ledger reported.

Chris Christie, the Republican former federal prosecutor who defeated Corzine, opposes marriage equality and has said he would veto any same-sex marriage bill that arrives on his desk.
