CA Gay Rights Group: Wait For 2012 To Fight Ban

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - One of California's largest and most influential gay rights groups says it prefers to wait until the 2012 election to ask voters to repeal the state's same-sex marriage ban.

Equality California said Wednesday organizers spoke to donors, campaign consultants and community leaders and concluded that pursuing the 2012 ballot, instead of 2010, is the best strategy to win. They say they'll have more time to raise money and persuade undecided voters.

Activists have been divided over when to go back to the polls since passage last fall of Proposition 8.

Some say the earlier the better. The Los Angeles-based Courage Campaign announced Wednesday it would continue a push to place a measure on the 2010 ballot.
