BOSTON (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown says he'll agree to a debate proposed by Victoria Kennedy provided she agrees not to endorse a candidate in the Senate race and that media sponsors are exclusively local.
A spokeswoman for the Kennedy Institute said the organization looks forward to negotiating the terms of the debate with both campaigns in person.
Kennedy invited Brown and Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren to go head-to-head at the University of Massachusetts campus, near where the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate - named after her late husband - is being built.
Warren agreed to the Sept. 27 debate. Brown at first declined to say if he'd participate.
On Monday, Brown's campaign said he'd participate as long as what his campaign is calling "neutrality conditions" are met - including barring MSNBC as a sponsor.
