Supporters of same-sex marriage in Washington state announced Monday they had raised more than $952,000 in June, bringing total contributions to more than $2 million in its campaign to uphold the state’s new marriage equality law, which is on hold pending the outcome of a November ballot measure.
Washington United for Marriage (WUM), the broad coalition working to defend the bipartisan marriage law, said the campaign contributions were driven in large part by new in-state donors, and represented the highest monthly intake for the campaign.
At the same time, WUM said it now has more than 1,000 volunteers actively working to approve Referendum 74, the ballot question that will ask voters to uphold or reject the state’s recently passed law legalizing same-sex marriage.
