Arizona Gay Marriage Initiatve Goes Dormant
Lack of support from advocacy groups
An initiative campaign to have Arizona voters decide next year whether to legalize gay marriage is faltering amid reluctance by national and local advocacy groups to back the measure.
Volunteers continue to collect signatures but paid signature gatherers have been pulled from the street and a scheduled volunteer training event wasn't held.
"We're in a period of kind of continued dormancy. The dormancy has gone on for a few weeks as we have been in negotiation with the local LGBT groups," campaign co-chair Erin Ogletree Simpson said.
