Restore Equality 2010 announced today that it fell short in its effort to gather the 695,000 signatures needed by today to place a same-sex marriage measure on this year's ballot.

said the failure hopefully can provide some guidance for a successful endeavor in 2012. "There might be some way to make this a win-win to get
some analysis of why it failed: person power or money so we can gird
our loins -- as long as it wasn't same sex loin girding -- for 2012."
