JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is launching “Republicans for Begich” as part of his campaign’s outreach effort.

Campaign spokesman Max Croes says the group is in keeping with other subsets of supporters, like “Women for Begich,” ”Alaska Natives for Begich” and even “Pilots for Begich.”

He says these are individuals willing to help with grassroots activities, like reminding friends to vote and sharing messages from the campaign.

Croes said there are Republicans who have known and supported Begich for years.

Three high-profile Republicans are vying to take on Begich. They are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, Joe Miller and former state Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan.
