News Analysis: The Gay Marriage Vote in NJ

Thursday, January 07, 2010

A bill to legalize gay marriage was defeated in New Jersey's state Senate on Thursday. The vote, 14 for and 20 against, is a blow to gay marriage advocates, who were trying to get the measure passed before Gov.-elect Chris Christie, anĀ opponent of gay marriage, takes office on January 19.

WNYC's Bob Hennelly, reporting from Trenton, NJ, discussed the vote with Amy Eddings.
