The Human Rights Campaign is directing $1 million in cash to four states with marriage ballot initiatives this November, a new chunk of funding for efforts to make history with a statewide win among voters an issue on which polls show public opinion shifting.

The HRC funds, which are being unveiled Monday, are $250,000 apiece for Maine, Washington, Maryland and Minnesota, all of which have ballot measures in November on marriage.

Officials said there will be more spending coming, and that it makes the total spent by HRC in 2011 and 2012 on marriage-related efforts to $4.8 million.
