South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint is debuting an Alaska ad aiding the embattled Senate nominee he has endorsed, Joe Miller, by highlighting his anti-abortion rights position.
DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund is funding an advertisement that begins airing this week that hits both of Miller’s opponents for supporting abortion rights, in an effort to set the GOP nominee apart from Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Scott McAdams in what has become a competitive three-way race.
DeMint's group has purchased $100,000 in airtime for the advertisement, which will air on both TV and radio. It's the first time the conservative senator's group has run television ads in the state.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is also parachuting in to Alaska to help Miller – the group announced Tuesday evening it was buying $162,000 worth of television ad time to promote Miller via an independent expenditure.
