Could Gov. Chris Christie support a gay marriage bill? He did not give a definate answer one way or another during a question and answer with the media on Thursday. Christie has been a supporter of civil unions in the past, but would not give a clear answer on his stance now. Democrats are championing a bill to legalize gay marriage in New Jersey. Christie simply said he would deal with the bill if it comes before him at that time. Leaders in the Senate and Assembly said it would be a top goal of theirs in the New Year to advance this legislation.
