PHOENIX - Organizers of an initiative campaign for a 2014 ballot measure to legalize gay marriage in Arizona are dropping that effort in favor of waiting until 2016.

The Equal Marriage Campaign says it had broad support but that key national advocacy groups withheld backing that was needed to make a 2014.

Those groups favor waiting until 2016 to put a gay marriage measure on Arizona's ballot and Equal Marriage Arizona says it now also supports doing that.
