OLYMPIA, Wash. —

The campaign seeking to overturn the state's new gay marriage law raised just over $17,000 in cash in June, much less than the nearly $900,000 in cash donations raised by supporters of the law.

According to Public Disclosure Commission filings that posted Tuesday, Preserve Marriage has raised a total of $139,702 for its campaign. Washington United for Marriage has raised more than $2 million.

Referendum 74 was certified for the ballot last month after gay marriage opponents turned in more than 240,000 signatures. The referendum seeks to overturn the law passed earlier this year allowing same-sex marriage in the state. That law is on hold pending the November vote

Preserve Marriage chairman Joseph Backholm says he expects the campaign to raise $4 million in the coming months.
