Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and likely Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are trying to reach an agreement that would curb the influence of third-party political groups in their race, according to the Boston Globe
The newspaper reported Wednesday the two have exchanged letters outlining their views and plan to have their campaign managers meet Friday to possibly work out a detailed arrangement.
Brown, who officially launches his bid for re-election today, first proposed that they should do something to limit negative advertising by outside groups in a letter he sent to Warren Wednesday afternoon.
Although Warren is not the definitive Democratic nominee, she is considered the most likely candidate.
The Republican suggested that each of them should donate to charity 50 percent of the cost of any third-party advertisements that run supporting or denouncing the other.
Warren agreed, according to the Globe, but suggested in her response that both candidates sign a joint letter “explicitly notifying known third party groups — and new groups that emerge — of the agreement.”
The Globe said Warren also raised the idea of notifying broadcasting outlets that the agreement between the two not only covers “express advocacy ads, but all paid public advertisements that seek to promote or attack either candidate or campaign.”
