OLYMPIA, Wash. —

The campaign to uphold the state's gay marriage law raised $1.7 million in cash contributions for the month of August.

According to filings posted Tuesday, 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. Preserve Marriage raised more than $229,000 last month.

Washington United for Marriage is expected to start running TV ads starting Wednesday as part of what they have said is a $5 million ad buy between now and the election. Officials with Preserve Marriage say they have also reserved TV time but would not give additional details

Preserve Marriage Washington pushed to get Referendum 74 on the November ballot. R-74 asks voters to either approve or reject the law passed earlier this year that allows same-sex marriage in the state. That law is on hold pending a November vote.
