JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is poking fun at one of his Republican rivals, suggesting Dan Sullivan’s campaign spots show how effective Begich has been.

Begich’s latest ad shows him at Anchorage’s Dena’ina Center, where Sullivan shot an ad saying Alaska needs “real results, not just talk.”

As mayor of Anchorage, Begich says he got the center built. He says a steel plant featured in another Sullivan ad has more business because, as senator, he got the Obama administration to allow more drilling.

Begich then suggests other places in which he says he’s gotten results that Sullivan could use for future ads.

Sullivan spokesman Mike Anderson says if Begich wants to take credits for his “alleged accomplishments,” he should own up to a record as mayor that included “irresponsible spending.”
