Campaign for NJ Gay Marriage Vote Could be Costly

One reason gay rights groups don’t want to see a public vote on gay marriage in New Jersey is that they know the odds are against them.

This week, Gov. Chris Christie, who opposes gay marriage, said the fair way to decide the issue in the state would be to hold a public vote.

Democratic lawmakers say they have no intent of moving that idea forward, though.

One reason is that gay marriage opponents have won votes in all 30 states where they have been on the ballot. Those groups say they would mount a vigorous campaign in New Jersey, even though polls show the state’s voters support gay marriage.

Garden State Equality chairman Steven Goldstein says the campaign would not show the will of the people — only which side can raise the most money.
