Supporters of marriage equality in Washington said Monday they raised more than $952,000 last month for the campaign to uphold the state’s new law, which is on hold pending the outcome of a November ballot measure.

The announcement by Washington United for Marriage comes a day before a deadline for initiative campaigns to file their monthly campaign-finance reports with the state Public Disclosure Commission.

“We want to continue this incredible momentum and ride this wave throughout summer to be competitive in the fall,” said Zach Silk, the group’s campaign manager. Silk said the campaign expects a fundraising spike by opponents later in the fall.
