Mass. Sen. Brown says he'll honor deal with rival Warren after learning of online ads from PAC
BOSTON (AP) ' Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown's campaign is promising to donate money to charity after learning that a political action committee ran online ads on his behalf.
Brown's campaign said Tuesday it's the first time the Republican or his chief Democratic rival, Elizabeth Warren, have enforced a pledge against third-party ads in the Senate race.
Brown's campaign manager said the Coalition of Americans for Political Equality has been asked to stop the ads.
In keeping with the Jan. 23 pledge, Jim Barnett said Brown's campaign would donate the equivalent of half the PAC's spending on the ads to a charity of Warren's choice.
Warren's campaign says it's disappointed that what it called a "pro-Mitt Romney super PAC" broke the pledge.
A message left with the organization wasn't returned Tuesday.
