Two of the Democratic candidates running for attorney general in Massachusetts have agreed to a “People’s Pledge” to reject PAC campaign donations, while former Boston City Councilor Andrea Campbell didn’t address the pledge at a forum on Thursday.

Shannon Liss-Riordan, a former candidate for U.S. Senate, said she agreed about the “People’s Pledge.” She noted that she accepted the pledge when she ran for the Senate a couple of years ago.

“I agree that all three of us should agree to the ‘People’s Pledge,’ and say no to corporate PAC money,” said Liss-Riordan, founding partner of Lichten & Liss-Riordan law firm.

“I will not be beholden to anyone,” she added. “I will not be beholden to corporations. I take on corporations. I know how to hold them accountable. I have changed their practices.”
