Equal Marriage Arizona, the group leading an effort to make Arizona the 14th state with a marriage equality law, has suspended its efforts to put the issue on the ballot in 2014. Co-chair Erin Ogletree Simpson cited difficulties in securing financial backing from national advocacy groups, many of which believe the effort should be put on hold until the 2016 presidential election. "I'm just happy our effort has prompted a focus from the various groups to look at 2016 and start putting together a strategy," she said.
