New Jersey legislators approved a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, but Gov. Chris Christie's promise to veto the measure sets the stage for a battle that should cement his role as a powerhouse in the Republican Party, even if voters support the right of gays to wed in a ballot measure. The vote in the Democratic-controlled Assembly on Thursday in favor of the Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption Act was 42 to 33 after nearly three hours of debate as speakers on both sides insisted they were acting on behalf of the majority of New Jersey voters.

New Jersey has a reputation for tough guys. Apparently, the state breeds tough dogs, too. A beagle named Brandi somehow managed to survive a 70-foot fall -- yes, a 70-foot fall -- from a New Jersey bridge. And she lived to bark about it. The Courier-Post reports that the dog got away from its owner during a walk Friday night along the riverfront promenade in Burlington, N.J., overlooking the Delaware River and located just outside Philadelphia. Officer Rob Bittner told the newspaper he spotted Brandi strolling over the Burlington-Bristol Bridge, headed toward Pennsylvania.

NEW YORK -- The 2012 presidential election is over, Ohio has certified its vote, even Rep. Allen West has conceded. So where's a political junkie to turn his or her attention throughout the long, cold winter? Perhaps New Jersey, a state known for its crooked politicians that was thrust into the spotlight after Superstorm Sandy, when Gov. Chris Christie showed up just about everywhere, prompting questions about his national political aspirations. Christie is running for reelection in 2013, riding the highest popularity ratings a New Jersey governor has ever had. But the race may not be a blowout.

Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, climbed on a stage here the other night and hailed his state's political history at a rally for Jon Corzine, the embattled Democratic governor running for reelection. "New Jersey," Booker shouted to supporters in the upscale sushi bar, "is a state of impossible dreams." Until recently, that described Corzine's likely odds at the ballot box Tuesday. But the unpopular governor's race against Christopher Christie, the Republican challenger, has tightened to a dead heat after months of relentless negative campaigning by both sides.

Shortly after two New Jersey men were arraigned Monday on terrorism-related charges in Newark, N.J., Paul J. Fishman paused briefly on the steps of U.S. District Court. The top federal prosecutor in the state conceded that once again authorities had been lucky — this time with a pair of bumblers who allegedly pledged to wage jihad in Somalia but were being shadowed for years by FBI agents. Indeed, it marked the third time in six months that terrorism suspects were tripped up by their own ineptness.
