Washington state voted Tuesday on a ballot measure that would require food products containing genetically modified organisms to be labeled as such. The initiative was supported by smaller food companies, but larger corporations spent drastically more on media campaigns opposing the measure. Early returns show the initiative failed with 55 percent opposing the measure, though labeling supporters like Delana Jones, campaign manager for the measure, are relying on late ballots to push the vote through. Jones said:
"This is far from over and we have several days of vote counting ahead. I'm cautiously optimistic."
