Wash. gay partnership foes say "too close to call"

(From the Seattle Times)

"Opponents of a new domestic partnership law are making a final push for petitions to force a public vote, calling their effort so far "too close to call."

In a statement released Friday, the Referendum 71 campaign says it will have the minimum 120,577 petition signatures needed to qualify for the ballot. But organizer Gary Randall also says they don't have enough extra signatures to act as a cushion for errors.

Randall is asking R-71 supporters to drive additional signatures to the state Capitol on Saturday afternoon, to make the deadline for referendum petitions."
