WA Gay Marriage Supporters Out-Raise Opponents

In the final days heading into the election, gay marriage supporters continue to hold a strong financial advantage over the group looking to overturn Washington state's law allowing same-sex marriage.

According to filings posted late Tuesday with the Public Disclosure Commission, Washington United for marriage raised $1.3 million over the past two weeks, bringing the total amount it's raised during the campaign to $11.9 million. Preserve Marriage Washington, which opposes the gay marriage law, raised more than $481,000 during that same time period and has raised a total of $2.6 million, far short of the $4 million that officials with the campaign said they initially expected to raise.
