Same-sex marriage campaign declares victory

Washington United for Marriage, the campaign seeking to legalize same-sex marriage in our state, has crunched the numbers and is declaring victory in Tuesday night’s election for Referendum 74.

With hundreds of thousands of ballots still to be counted, the measure is currently ahead 52 to 48.

Meanwhile, the opposing campaign, Preserve Marriage Washington, is urging caution. The Seattle Times has yet to call this race.
