Sen. Brown asks PAC to pull cam­paign ads

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

BOS­TON | The cam­paign of Sen. Scott P. Brown, Mas­sachusetts Re­pub­li­can, is promis­ing to do­nate money to char­ity af­ter learn­ing that a po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tee ran on­line ads on his be­half.

Mr. Brown’s cam­paign said Tues­day that it was the first time Mr. Brown or his chief Demo­cratic ri­val, El­iz­a­beth War­ren, has en­forced a pledge against third-party ads in the Se­nate race.

Mr. Brown’s cam­paign man­ager, Jim Bar­nett, said the Coali­tion of Amer­i­cans for Po­lit­i­cal Equal­ity has been asked to stop the ads.

In keep­ing with the Jan. 23 pledge, Mr. Bar­nett said, Mr. Brown’s cam­paign would do­nate the equiv­a­lent of half the PAC’S spend­ing on the ads to a char­ity of Ms. War­ren’s choice.

Ms. War­ren’s cam­paign says it is dis­ap­pointed that what it called a “pro-mitt Rom­ney su­per PAC” broke the pledge.

A mes­sage left with the or­ga­ni­za­tion wasn’t re­turned Tues­day.
