SEATTLE —

The campaign to uphold the state's gay marriage law raised $2.8 million in cash contributions over the past six weeks.

According to filings posted with the Public Disclosure Commission on Tuesday, Washington United for Marriage has raised more than $10 million in cash and in-kind donations for its campaign, compared with more than $1.8 million raised by Preserve Marriage Washington, which is trying to overturn the new law. Preserve Marriage's latest fundraising report had not yet posted to the PDC site.

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.

Washington United for Marriage has spent more than $5 million on television ads during that same time period. Its ads started running last month, and spokesman Zach Silk said that the money spent on advertising takes them through Election Day. Preserve Marriage just started running its TV ads against R-74 last week.
