BOSTON (AP) - The three independent candidates for governor have agreed to limit their spending in the general election, making them eligible for a share of public matching funds.

Jeff McCormick, Evan Falchuk and Scott Lively have all filed the necessary signatures to appear on the November ballot. The state office of Campaign and Political Finance said Wednesday that all three agree to a $1.5 million expenditure limit.

Each are now eligible for a share of the approximately $620,000 in available public matching funds. The final allotment will be decided after next week’s Democratic and Republican primaries.

Two Democratic candidates for governor, Martha Coakley and Don Berwick, earlier agreed to limit their spending. A third Democrat, Steven Grossman, didn’t.

Republican Mark Fisher also agreed to the limits, but fellow GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker declined.
