Murkowski demands Begich ad come down

By KTVA CBS 11 News 11:05 AM August 7, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

The political season may be causing a rift between Alaska’s senators.

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s office sent a cease and desist letter to Sen. Mark Begich Thursday, asking him to take a campaign ad of the air.

The ad includes Murkowski’s image, which her camp says implies her support for Begich.

The letter also says the ad is factually incorrect.

Begich says he and Murkowski work well together and politics won’t change that.

“The data, the information, 80 percent of the time we voted the same in this last year is factual and I’ll continue to run ads that are factual and talk about my record and talk about what I’m doing,” Begich said Thursday.

Begich says he doesn’t plan to take it off the air.
