Santorum in Washington to raise money for gay-marriage opponents

Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum

Following a stop in Spokane on Tuesday, Rick Santorum, former U.S. senator and presidential candidate, is scheduled to be at the Bellevue Hyatt on Wednesday to raise money for the campaign that opposes same-sex marriage in Washington.

The Family Policy Institute of Washington is hosting Santorum’s visit. FPIW is a coalition member of Preserve Marriage Washington, which is running the Referendum 74 campaign to defeat gay marriage.

Their opponent, Washington United for Marriage, has urged the institute and Preserve Marriage to rescind the invitation to Santorum, saying the former senator has built his profile largely by degrading and insulting gay and lesbian people.
