The state Senate is set to vote this evening on a measure that would legalize gay marriage in Washington state.

Supporters say they have the 25 votes needed to pass the bill. If approved by the Senate, it moves to the House, where it already has enough support. Gov. Chris Gregoire says she will sign it into law if passed.
