“We had an offer on the table and I took that offer and tightened it up, closed up some of the big loopholes in it and have sent it back and said ‘You got everything you asked for here. Let’s sign it and let’s be done,” Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Monday morning.

Senator Scott Brown told Fox News Monday he is on board with the changes.

“I signed it twice, forwarded it to her, she made some recent tweaks and I accept and it’s a good way to keep these ads out,” Brown said.

Top level staffers for both candidates failed to reach a deal during a meeting last week.

    Seems to me that they shouldn;t be able to remove the free speech rights of Americans in this way. I (and anyone else who cares) should be able to have our say in the public domain, without restriction. This “ban” of 3rd party ads is incredibly unconstitutional.
