According to NWCN, the right wing group Preserve Marriage raised only $17,000 in the month of June. Washington United for Marriage, the group hoping to maintain the state's marriage equality, raised a little over $900,000 during the same period, thanks in large part to Microsoft executives Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer. WUM has raised a total over $2 million.
In contrast, Preserve Marriage has scraped together a total of $140,000, but chairman Joseph Backholm says they expect to raise $4 million before November.
While that goal sounds far-fetched, the National Organization for Marriage and other conservative groups have vowed to get in on the fight, a tag-team that may upset the balance a little.
