Debate II: Harder Lines on Soft Money

Debate II: Harder Lines on Soft Money

BY Erik Kriss

Rep. Rick Lazio unveiled pledges Wednesday from 13 outside groups to refrain from raising and spending controversial "soft money" to aid his U.S. Senate campaign if first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton does the same. Clinton, appearing about an hour after Lazio at an Associated Press conference in Albany, pledged to match Lazio's move "if what he's offered is compatible with what I've been asking for months."
