JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A super PAC that supports Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has a new ad that, for the first time, takes on Republican Senate hopeful Mead Treadwell.

Put Alaska First’s ad also features Republican Dan Sullivan, the presumptive front-runner in the race who has been a target of the group for months.

Treadwell sees his inclusion as a sign that Put Alaska First sees him as a threat, with the Aug. 19 primary looming. Put Alaska First’s treasurer declined to comment on that.

The ad says Treadwell launched a company that “pushed a national ID card,” in trying to paint him as supporting more government control.

Treadwell says a company he helped found in the 1990s made technology to validate the authenticity of currency, passports and photo identifications.
