JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A political action committee founded by former aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid provided the sole funding for a super PAC supporting Democratic Sen. Mark Begich in July.
Between July 1 and July 30, Put Alaska First reported nearly $670,000 in contributions from the Senate Majority PAC. It ended the period with a negative balance of nearly $40,000.
Senate Majority PAC has been a major funder of Put Alaska First, which for months has run ads against the presumptive GOP front-runner Dan Sullivan and recently turned attention to another Republican in the race, Mead Treadwell.
The primary is Aug. 19.
