As same-sex marriage faces a crucial test this week in Washington, supporters of marriage equality in New Jersey got a boost of political firepower today from three Democratic candidates running in a special election for U.S. Senate. Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Rep. Rush Holt (D-12th Dist.) and Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6th Dist.) joined hundreds of marchers at Montclair’s Erie Park for the fourth annual “Equality Walk” — a 2.5-mile march in support of same-sex marriage, safe schools and equal rights in the workplace sponsored by the advocacy group Garden State Equality.
