Markey, Lynch sign deal aimed at limiting outside group ads

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - U.S. Reps. Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch have signed a deal aimed at limiting outside groups from launching television, radio and Internet ads during the Democratic primary in Massachusetts upcoming special U.S. Senate election.

The deal is based on a pledge signed by Republican Scott Brown and Democratic Elizabeth Warren during last year's Senate race.

The deal between Markey and Lynch also includes to money spent on direct mail advertising which was not covered by the Brown and Warren agreement.

After signing the agreement Markey and Lynch both put out press releases saying that outside money should have no place in the Senate race.

If an outside group runs an ad, the deal requires the candidate who benefits to donate half the cost of the ad to a charity chosen by the other candidate.
