Murkowski demands Begich ad come down

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Lawyers for Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's campaign are demanding that a commercial from her Democratic counterpart, U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, touting their cooperation in Washington be immediately pulled. But Begich's campaign says they are standing by the ad. The ad has been airing as part of Begich's re-election this year. The ad titled, "Great Team," notes how many times he and Murkowski have voted the same way even though they're from different parties, suggesting their pairing is the best interest for Alaskans. In a Thursday letter to Begich's campaign, Murkowski claims the ad makes false and deceptive statements, misuses her image without permission and appears to violate federal law for using an official Senate office photo. The campaign says they licensed the image from The Associated Press.
