OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Washington state Gov. Chris Gregoire sent New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a letter last month offering to talk about gay marriage.

Gregoire, a Democrat, wrote Christie on Jan. 31, saying that she has been on a personal journey, "because while I am a Governor, I am also a Catholic."

The New Jersey Senate passed gay marriage on Monday, the same day Gregoire signed a gay marriage measure into law in Washington state. The New Jersey Assembly is expected to vote on the measure Thursday. Christie, a Republican who opposes gay marriage, has promised to veto the bill if it reaches his desk.

Gregoire spokeswoman Karina Shagren says Gregoire was reaching out as a friend, and "by no means is there some contentious feeling between the two." Shagren says Christie has not responded.
