I read his "should" and "and" as to mean there were many advocating the rights of both groups.

I don't think that particular case indicates many people advocating the right for both. The explicit removal from both groups at the same time also doesn't seem to have instigated any strong opposition. (The claim that it was merely political notwithstanding.)

That said, that some laws were explicitly adapted to the clause (at least in the case of women) and its survival for many years lends support to the slightly weaker claim that many in NJ were not opposed to allowing it. Which certainly is notable but the same.
