Super-PAC ad supports Begich on healthcare

Last week, Put Alaska First, a super PAC formed to support Sen. Mark Begich’s 2014 reelection effort, reported to the FEC that it paid D.C. firm Waterfront Strategies $98,000 for ads, one of which is already up. The ad counters a much publicized ad from the Koch brothers’ funded group American’s for Prosperity, featuring an actress from Maryland criticizing Begich’s support for ObamaCare. The pro-Begich ad features Alaskan Megan Collie saying Begich is trying to fix healthcare. Collie is the communications director for the AFL-CIO, the largest labor union in Alaska.
