A Republican-aligned outside group launched a $1.25 million ad buy Thursday against Alaska Sen. Mark Begich.  

Crossroads GPS, the issue advocacy arm of American Crossroads, is hitting Begich on equal pay for women. It’s a strike back on women’s issues after Democrats leveled attacks against Begich’s Republican challenger Dan Sullivan ahead of his primary victory Tuesday . The ad, which is running through Sept. 3, comes a day after a pro-Begich super PAC spent $490,000 on an ad portraying Sullivan as someone Alaskans can’t trust.  

Both national parties and outside groups aligned with both sides have reserved millions in airtime in the state leading up to November.
