Washington Senate to vote on gay marriage tomorrow

– Liz Mair

Tomorrow, Washington's Senate is set to vote on legalizing gay marriage in the state, but it sounds like the vote will come late in the day, with the Seattle Times reporting that debate is slated to begin "in the late afternoon or early evening."

The Senate has the votes to pass the bill (the number required to pass have in fact endorsed it). The House supposedly does, too, and Gov. Gregoire backs it.

I've been hard on Gregoire over the years, but here I say "well done."  Hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day ;) [intro]
