Sweeney’s county chairman backs marriage equality

Gloucester County Democratic Chairman Michael Angelini, who is Senate President-designate Stephen Sweeney's county chairman, has added his name to a letter urging Democratic legislators to support marriage equality. The letter, signed by more than 200 key Democratic activists and fundraisers, is pushing the Democratic-controlled Legislature to pass the bill during their lame duck session, before Gov. Jon Corzine leaves office next month. Sweeney has been sending mixed signals concerning his support of same sex marriage.

The other Democratic Senator from Gloucester County, Frederick Madden, is viewed as a likely no vote.
