Shaheen wants to limit outside cash in Senate race

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is calling on newly announced Republican challenger Scott Brown to sign the same pact in New Hampshire that helped prevent outside groups from pouring money into his Massachusetts Senate election.

Shaheen outlined her proposal in a letter to the former Massachusetts senator Saturday morning, after Brown announced plans to launch an exploratory committee to enter the New Hampshire race.

Shaheen says she admired the so-called People's Pledge that Brown signed with Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2012. She says New Hampshire voters should have the same assurance their voices won't be "drowned out by third-party expenditures."

Brown would not comment on whether he would agree to a pledge but said Shaheen is on a multiple-city West Coast fundraising swing that he says will provide money to third party groups for more outside negative ads against him.
