Washington United for Marriage (WUM), declares victory for the passage of state Referendum 74, approving same sex marriage:

With 60 percent of the vote counted, R74 already has the support of 65% of King County and is performing well in key Eastern Washington counties. Simply put, it’s now impossible for opponents to overcome the 52-48% spread for R74.
This announcement now makes last night’s marriage equality measures in Minnesota, Maryland and Maine a sweep for civill rights for same sex couples and *love*.
