Campaign Finance Deal

Andrea Bernstein of member station WNYC reports from New York City on the deal struck over the weekend between the campaigns of Senate candidates Hillary Clinton and Rick Lazio. They agreed not to accept any soft money or outside contributions between now and Election Day. Advocates of campaign finance reform hope candidates in other races will do likewise and that the deal will encourage Congress to pass reform legislation in the next session.
