New American Crossroads Ad Gives Credit to Begich

The Alaska Democrat Deserves Credit for Voting with Obama 97% of the Time, Not for Projects He Claims Credit For

ANCHORAGE – Today, American Crossroads released a new ad in Alaska highlighting the continued disconnect between the record Mark Begich touts in Alaska and his real record in Washington.

The new ad, “Credit,” will air statewide for a total buy of $450,000 starting on Thursday, June 26.  The spot can be viewed here

“Give Mark Begich credit where it’s due: he’s the only member of the Alaska congressional delegation who votes with Barack Obama 97% of the time,” said Art Hackney, an Alaska-based strategist for American Crossroads. “The fact is that the record Begich touts in Alaska is far removed from his real record in Washington. While Begich wants to take credit in Alaska for things he did not do, he’s hoping Alaskans will look the other way when it comes to his record of voting with President Obama.”
