Tolling: Eyman says his side was outspent

“For us to get this close is nothing short of remarkable,” Tim Eyman said tonight, as his anti-tolling Initiative 1125 was trailing and likely to lose.

“We spent nothing on this initiative, and the other side spent $2.5 million,” he said. “Because of this vote, I think Olympia’s plans to be tolling everywhere will only be able to proceed very slowly and very cautiously. I think 1125 made tolls even more radioactive. It’s impossible to see the vote on 1125 as a massive endorsement of tolls on highways.”
