Gay marriage supporters raise $2.8 million in six weeks
SEATTLE, Wash. -Supporters of gay marriage say their campaign has raised $2.8 million in cash contributions over the past six weeks.
Filings posted with the Public Disclosure Commission show Washington United for Marriage has reported more than $10 million in cash and in-kind donations for its campaign, compared to the more than $1.8 million raised by Preserve Marriage Washington, which is trying to overturn the new law.
Preserve Marriage's latest fundraising report had not yet posted to the PDC site.
R-74 asks voters to either approve or reject the law passed earlier this year that allows same-sex marriage in the state. The law is on hold pending the November vote.
