Sen. Brown & Candidate Warren make history with “The People’s Pledge”
MASSACHUSETTS – Earlier this week, Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren agreed to ask outside groups to stay out of this November’s election, agreeing to what is being called “The People’s Pledge”.
If an independent third-party group spends money on TV, radio, or online advertising that denigrates their opponent, each candidate has agreed to pay 50% of the cost of airing that advertisement to a charity of the opponent’s choosing.
According to an email from the Brown campaign, the Senator hopes the pledge will “deter unaccountable Super PACs from polluting Massachusetts airwaves with their vicious attacks”
To date, liberal groups have spent over $3 million attacking Brown across the airwaves. One pro-Warren group has already agreed to take down their ads attacking Brown as a result of the pledge.
In an email to his supporters this week, Sen. Brown asked supporters to keep an eye out for any pro-Warren online advertising and to email his Digital Director Christy Lewis to ensure the agreement is honored.
