NEW: Markey and Lynch Sign People’s Pledge in Senate Race

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

 

U.S. Representatives Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston) and Ed Markey (D-Malden) signed the so-called "People's Pledge" on Wednesday to keep ads funded by third-party groups out of the U.S. Senate special election to fill John Kerry's seat.

Lynch and Markey followed the lead of former Republican Senator Scott Brown and Senator Elizabeth Warren in the 2012 Mass. Senate race, and the two congressman called on their GOP counterparts in this year's contest to do the same. In addition, the agreement Lynch and Markey signed expands upon the 2012 pledge to include direct mail advertising in addition to broadcast ads.

"Outside money has no place in the Massachusetts Senate race," said Markey. "This election should be focused on issues, not outside-group attack ads. I urge all candidates in this race to join us in committing to the people's pledge and say no to the outside special interests who want to influence this election."

"Outside interest groups have no place in Massachusetts elections," said Lynch. "This race should be decided in debates and on the stump, not by third party advertisements or special interest mailers. I urge the Republican, Libertarian, unenrolled, and any other candidates to join us in this pledge."
