ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska’s senior senator is making no bones about who she is backing in this year’s Senate race.

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said during a news conference in Anchorage on Monday that Dan Sullivan is the man she wants to see as her partner in the U.S. Senate.

Murkowski is backing her fellow Republican in his race against Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election.

She cut an ad last week endorsing Sullivan. Shortly after that began running, Begich began running another ad touting his bipartisan cooperation with Murkowski in the Senate.

She’s asked Begich to stop running such ads and not to use her imagery in his advertisements.

Murkowski declined to say for whom she’s voting for in the governor’s race.
