From the New Jersey Star-Ledger:
"Pro-gay marriage advocates have an uphill fight to get the 21 votes needed for passage in the uppper house, as only 13 senators have publicly supported the bill.
"If the bill were to pass the Senate and then pass the Assembly Monday, Gov. Jon Corzine has vowed to sign the measure and make New Jersey the sixth state to allow gay marriage."
