The nation’s largest gay-rights advocacy group said on Tuesday that it would spend $1 million in the four states holding marriage ballot initiatives this year.

Human Rights Campaign’s special ballot measure PAC said it would split the $1 million evenly among Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, The Daily Caller reports.

The expenditure will bring the group’s total spending to $4.8 million in this election cycle, The DC reports.

“This is a tipping point year in the fight for marriage equality that requires significant investment,” said HRC President Chad Griffin in a statement reported by The DC. “We are committed to making sure this is the year that our opponents can no longer claim Americans will not support marriage equality at the ballot box.”

If the initiative succeeds in Maine, the state would legalize same-sex marriage.

Voters in Maryland and Washington will decide to approve or disapprove the legislature’s legalization of same-sex marriage – while Minnesota’s ballot initiative would ban same-sex marriage, keeping the traditional definition of marriage.
