A Victory in Washington State: Approve 71′s “lead now appears insurmountable”

Congrats to everyone in Washington State. Our side won:

Washington state voters have approved Referendum 71, keeping a law that expands state benefits for registered same-sex and some senior domestic partners.

The tally Thursday afternoon saw the vote to approve R-71 widening its lead 52.5 percent to 47.5 percent.

That lead now appears insurmountable.
