Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren agree on at least two things: They'd each like to be the junior senator from Massachusetts, and they both want outside money in the form of super PACs to stay out of their race to achieve that goal. The pair issued a joint call for a super PAC ceasefire today, reports Politico, which notes that super PACs may not be too likely to sit out a race that could influence control of the Senate just because the candidates say so.
“What I’d like to do is I’d like to be able to run my campaign,” Warren said today. “I’d like for Sen. Brown to run his campaign and we both be responsible for what is said." Brown indicated Warren was a little late to the party, saying he's "glad Professor Warren seems to be coming around" and that "I’m hopeful (that super PACs) will accept that message. This is going to be decided by the people of Massachusetts, not by the tens of millions of outside interest dollars coming into our state.”
