BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown says he won't be pressured by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's son to stop running a radio ad claiming the elder Kennedy's position is similar to Brown's in the fight over whether religious employers should provide birth control coverage.

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy has asked the Republican senator to pull the ad claiming Sen. Kennedy also supported religious exemptions for employers and health insurers.

Brown told reporters Monday that he wouldn't do that. He says he was "confused" by Patrick Kennedy's letter because the Rhode Island Democrat appeared to share the same position as his father on the issue and co-sponsored a similar bill when he was in Congress.
