   OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- In the final days heading into the election, gay marriage supporters continue to hold a strong financial advantage over the group looking to overturn Washington state's law allowing same-sex marriage in the state.


   According to filings posted late Tuesday with the Public Disclosure Commission, Washington United for marriage raised $1.3 million over the past two weeks, bringing the total amount it's raised during the campaign to $11.9 million. Preserve Marriage Washington, which opposes the gay marriage law, raised more than $481,000 during that same time period and has raised about $2.6 million overall.


   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 next Tuesday's vote.
