JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has a new ad, touting his commitment to Alaska veterans.

Begich, in the ad, refers to the “Alaska Heroes Card” he championed as a way to help veterans, particularly those living in rural communities, to access health care closer to home.

Begich says the program has become a model for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to use in other states.

Begich is seeking a second term in what is expected to be a hotly contested race. Republicans see his seat as key to their efforts to win back control of the Senate.
