The Oregon Family council decided to suspend their effort late last week.
Peter Zuckerman with Oregon United Against Discrimination says it was good news for their cause.
"The opposition dropped the measure late Friday. We were thrilled. There were cheers, hugs and tears. It was an amazing moment for the campaign and loving and committed couples all over Oregon."
Oregon United Against Discrimination is now looking ahead to Wednesday, when a federal judge in Eugene will hear the National Organization for Marriage make the case against allowing gay marriage in the state.
The judge could possibly rule on the case that day. If he doesn't rule by May 23rd, Oregon United Against Discrimnation plans to put the issue on the November ballot.
