Bill and Melinda Gates have donated $500,000 to the campaign to uphold the state’s gay marriage law.
The campaign to uphold the state’s gay marriage law raised $2.8 million in cash contributions over the past six weeks.
According to filings posted this week, Washington United for Marriage has raised a total of $7.4 million in its campaign, compared to the more than $525,000 raised by Preserve Marriage Washington, which is trying to overturn the new law.
Opponents of gay marriage said Wednesday they have reached the number of signatures needed to qualify a proposed referendum seeking to overturn a new law legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington state, and that they may turn them in as early as next Tuesday, June 5.
