GOP targets Alaska's Begich over Affordable Care Act - with ad that airs just once

 

Anchorage Daily News

The Republican National Committee announced Tuesday a fresh round in an expected torrent of campaign ads targeting Sen. Mark Begich and other Democrats for their part in the "lie of the year," an assurance that people could keep existing health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

The ad blast turned out to be more of a sprinkle.

In Anchorage, a single radio ad aimed at Begich was set to air on a single station -- 650 KENI -- one time on Tuesday, according to a check of the political ad buys at the two major radio conglomerates in Anchorage.

The total cost to the Republican National Committee for the Anchorage radio airtime? $30.

Begich's campaign says the RNC also is airing ads minimally in other markets around the country in which Democrats are being criticized over the Affordable Care Act.
