T-Mobile kicks in to Ref. 74 campaign

OLYMPIA -- T-Mobile dialed in support of the ballot measure that would legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state.

The cellphone service is giving $25,000 to the main campaign to pass Referendum 74, Washington United for Marriage.

The company said in a press release it was part of "a long-standing focus on creating an inclusive workplace environment for our employees."

It's a big donation, but not among the top 10 for the yes campaign, which has about $5.8 million with the T-Mobile money added in.

Preserve Marriage Washington, the primary no campaign, has slightly under $440,000.
